Genus: Kalanchoe

Species: thyrsiflora

About:

Kalanchoe Flapjack is a dramatic succulent that is easily recognised by its distinct foliage shape. The flat, disc-shaped grey-green leaves bear a striking resemblance to a pancake and the tips of each leaf look as though they have been dipped in red paint. This small clumping succulent performs best when grown in a sunny position as its remarkable red-tipped foliage is more pronounced in full sun. Favoured for its low maintenance, Kalanchoe Flapjack makes a unique and vivid potted plant on your balcony and is great for a table-top feature indoors. Flapjacks make an excellent addition to small gardens because their unusual shape and eye-catching leaf clusters provide instant appeal. Its clump-forming habit is ideal for adding colour to a bare patch in the garden, or plant in combination containers with other succulent varieties to achieve an interesting display of colour, form and texture.
