Kalanchoe marnieriana (Marnier's Kalanchoe)

Marnier's Kalanchoe, Bryophyllum marnierianum


Kalanchoe marnieriana (Marnier's Kalanchoe) is an evergreen succulent subshrub with flat, rounded, blue-green leaves. Paddle-shaped, the leaves are arranged oppositely and resemble clam shells. They are adorned with vibrant red-wine tips during the cooler winter months if grown in bright light. Attractive when not blooming, this Kalanchoe is particularly striking throughout the year, when flowering stalks arise from its center, bearing clusters of rose-pink to red, nodding flowers. Like other Kalanchoes, this plant can sporadically sprout new plantlets along the edges of leaves, which will eventually fall off, and grow into a new plant.

  • Grows up to 1-2 ft. tall (30-60 cm) and 2-3 ft. wide (60-90 cm), with a naturally upright to spreading habit, eventually creating a dense full plant.
  • Easily grown in well-drained soils in full sun to light shade.. This plant is more shade tolerant than other Kalanchoes. Drought tolerant, it requires little irrigation.
  • Protect from slugs and snails which permanently disfigure the leaves.
  • Excellent for succulent gardens or Mediterranean gardens. Perfect for containers where spectacular floral arrangements can be created.
  • Native to northeast Madagascar
