Kalanchoe is a large genus of easy-growing succulent plants, ranging from small compact plants to large tree-like shrubs. The leaves vary from smooth and shiny to being covered in hairs. The species in South African is commonly referred to as "Plakkies" in Afrikaans. It is a widespread genus, found in South Africa, northwards in Africa and with several species in Madagascar.
The variability in the genus presents an array of plant forms, sizes, leaf shapes, colours and textures. This spectrum of features makes them excellent plants for container gardening, the rockery or used in larger landscapes. There are some species of Kalanchoe with an invasive and weedy habit and these should be avoided.
