Kalanchoe is a genus of tropical, perennial succulents native to Africa and Asia, with showy flowers in the Crassulaceae family. This plant can be grown as a shrub, herb, or climber. It is prized for its long-lasting colorful flowers and its interesting, succulent foliage. Toothed succulent leaves, thick branched stems, and cymose inflorescences are key ID features. Some species of Kalanchoe are viviparous and produce plantlets at leaf edges. Outside of the tropics, this plant prefers interior sites with high light, dry soil, and low relative humidity.
