Kalanchoe thyrsiflora is a striking, colourful, beautiful plant, also known as "Hot Lips" or "desert cabbage", from South Africa. It is a compact plant, with a silvery green bloom forming a rosette, with bright red tips on its leaves. It will grow a single flowering stem, arising from the colourful rosette of leaves, once a year in the summer. As it grows the leaves open up, the rossette formation becoming less compact. The leaves grow to about 15cm in length and will become tinged in red when exposed to the sun.
Mature plants may produce a spike of fragrant, yellow flowers in spring.
