Kalanchoe thyrsiflora 'Flapjacks'

Kalanchoe thyrsiflora 
The leaves of this popular succulent, which is 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 will form around the central flower stem. These can be removed with a knife if you want to grow new plants.
2017 update: I usually have some stock available at any given time but mainly in the cooler months.
