Kalanchoe Prolifera... Also known as Jurassic Kale, Kalanchoe prolifera is a giant species from the islandMadagascar, home of many oddities, this being no exception – looking like food for dinosaurs. Thick jointed stems are waxy, as are the opposite pairs of maroon-rimmed stout rubbery fishbone, succulent leaves rigidly ranked on handsome erect trunks. Terminal inflorescence of yellow flowers, each peeping from a bizarre dangling four-sided box-like bract, followed by a "proliferation" of plantlets, and gives the plant the common name Blooming Boxes (see picture insert). of Architecturally intriguing, this rubbery, extremely handsome, sculpture has become quite popular as an addition to summertime urns as an accent plant in recent years. If planted directly in your garden bed, this gentle giant can easily top eight feet by the time its enormous candelabra of blossoms crowns the succulent trunk. Growing this kalanchoe in a container or pot restricts their growth.
