Kalanchoe 'Bronze Sculpture'

Kalanchoe thyrsiflora 'Bronze Sculpture'
The leaves of this popular succulent,which is sometimes given the common name of 'Flapjacks' ,turn a brilliant red during winter. It is a great pot plant and may be grown on a sunny windowsill indoors or mass planted in a garden bed where its sculptural form can be enjoyed .It contrasts well with grasses or soft perennials. In summer it produces a tall stem of flowers. When the flower stem is cut away a large number of basal divisions ("babies") will form around the base. These can be removed with a knife if you want to grow new plants.
