Kalanchoe Genus & Species:

The Kalanchoe Genus

kal-un-KOH-ee

Kalanchoe Adams. is the correct and accepted scientific name for this genus of flowering plants in the Crassulaceae Family. The genus was named and described by Michel Adanson in Familles des Plantes in 1763.

The Plants of the World Online website lists 113 accepted species and two infraspecific names. For infraspecific names for each species on this site, you have to click on the accepted species names.

The 2013 version of The Plant List includes 133 accepted species (plus one infraspecific name), a total of 154 synonyms and 80 unresolved names. The Plant List is no longer maintained.

The species of Kalanchoe are tropical, succulent flowering plants, most of which are considered shrubs or herbaceous perennials. Some, however, are annual or biennial. For more information, you can click on the links below.

I have grown several species of Kalanchoe and plan on growing many more. They are fairly easy to grow, but as with most succulents, you have to follow a few basic rules. I am trying to get the blog pages to the right finished and updated so I am just going to refer you to the links below for growing instructions.

I have added pages for all the Kalanchoe species I have grown with lots of photos and my experience with them. I will continue adding more photos and pages as I grow more.
