Kalanchoe Succulent Description

Kalanchoe is a genus of about 125 species of tropical, succulent flowering plants endemic to Madagascar and tropical Africa. The deep green, scalloped leaves of the kalanchoe are just as attractive as the flowers. The sculpted foliage persists after bloom and provides for a beautiful plant.

Kalanchoe plants are special because of the long-lasting flower heads that bloom even in the coldest months of winter. Little maintenance is necessary for kalanchoe care and the succulent has few disease or pest problems, especially when grown indoors.
