Kalanchoes: A Field Guide

It’s hard to know if you have a Kalanchoe just by looking at it because many of the many species of this succulent don’t resemble each other.

Bred mainly as houseplants in USDA growing zones colder than 10, Kalanchoes are at home in tropical climates (think: Africa or Madagascar), where they are perennials that bloom with clusters of flowers (in shades of red, orange, yellow, or pink).

There’s a lot to be said for these succulents: they’re drought tolerant, happy in rocky or sandy soil, and have cheerfully bright clusters of small flowers. For more help keeping your Kalanchoe happy, see Succulents Explained: How to Identify and Grow 12 Favorites.
