I have been trying to identify this plant for some months now, but haven’t had any luck.

I’ve had it for three years, but last year was the first time it flowered. It doesn’t grow very fast, but is very hardy.

If you could give me any information, I’d be very grateful.

Many thanks,

Hi Sherrie, what a neat plant! I really don’t know what it could be; the leaves with the scalloped edges are similar to some of the Kalanchoe genus, but the flowers are very distinctive little bells. Although many Kalanchoe have bell-like blooms, they are usually in a cluster, not in twos and threes. Sorry I can’t help you, but I’ll keep looking, or maybe another visitor will be able to help.

The plant that you have in the pot is a cotyledon. They are extremely diverse in shape and form. If you look up cotyledon on the net you will find what you are looking for.

My Advice…
by: Tanya

My daughter brought me a 3″ cutting from her plant in New Orleans. I put it in a pot and watered with fertilizer and within a year it grew very large and produced many small bell shaped pink flowers. Feed your plant on a regular basis and it will grow very fast and I used a all purpose plant fertilizer.

Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi, or Lavender Scallops?
