Plant Description

We always get lots of oohs and ahhs when we add this unique plant to our displays at home and garden shows. Copper Kalanchoe is a well-branched succulent with a most interesting leaf color. Its coppery hue comes from a covering of tiny cinnamon colored hairs that give it a somewhat felted look. After the leaves age, they become more silvery in color. Sometimes called Copper Spoons, put it in a container and grow it out in full sun during summer then bring it inside and treat it as a house plant in winter. This easy to grow plant looks dynamite in a light colored pot grown out in full summer sun. As a succulent, it should be kept a little on the dry side.
