New Kalanchoes

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Gardeners will find quite a few new kalanchoes are available. The following are highly recommended.

Fantastic Kalanchoe thyrsiflora

One of the paddle plants, this is a vision of beauty. It is grown for the exquisite foliage rather than the flowers. This is noted for the very large leaves, which are mainly reddish, especially along the margins of the leaves. Some of the foliage is almost entirely red. The new growth is tinged with cream, gold, and green. Fantastic is a variegated variety that otherwise resembles the parent plant, which is the ever-popular flapjack or paddle plant.

Fantastic kalanchoe is an award winning new variety. It was awarded the Favorite New Foliage Plant Award and Retailerís Choice Award during the Tropical Plant Industry Expo in 2010.
