Product Details


Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi f. marginata (now known as Bryophyllum fedteschenkoi): Has fun, unusual look to it. Its scalloped-edge leaves have a blue-green base with variegation of cream and hot pink. It is also known as "Variegated Lavender Scallops". This plant thrives outdoors in part sun, or indoors near a sunny window.

It is native to Madagascar where it is a prolific grower and can reach up to 20.0" tall. When it gets tall, it will bend to touch the soil where it can grow new roots. It also sometimes produce new plantlets along its leaf edges.

The flowers on this variety are quite stunning, particularly in large groups. Numerous coral, tubular blooms hang like bells and attract pollinators. Blooming often takes place in winter for this variety.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need ample sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

Gardeners' Notes:

On Sep 18, 2003, Happenstance from Northern California, CA wrote:

Most often seen in a hanging basket in the retail market, this forms a dense succulent ground cover with pendulous coral bell shaped flowers when planted in the ground in 9b. Much more refined looking than Kalanchoe blossfeldiana.

Bryophyllum 'Tessa' is a hybrid between Bryophyllum manginii (formerly Kalanchoe manginii) and B. gracilipes (formerly K. gracilipes and syn. Kitchingia gracilipes) raised at the Wageningen Agricultural University in The Netherlands.
