Verigated Paddle Plant
Kalanchoe luciae 'Fantastic , also known as Variegated Paddle Plant, is an exciting new patented introduction to the plant trade and with its collage of foliage colors, reds, purples and yellow infused with a pale blue/green leaf color, is a interesting and beautiful sight. Like Kalanchoe luciae, the, species it is derived from, this plant grows 1 to 2 feet tall and wide with thick clam shell like 4-6 inch long by 2-5 inch wide rounded leaves that emerge from the basal rosette. The leaves are like the species with a gray-green color and red highlights but add to this splashes of cream to white variegation and you have 'Fantastic'. We have yet to see this plant bloom but as with the species it should produce flowers rising on a single long stem, to 2-3 feet, bearing clusters of pale yellow tubular flowers from late winter into early spring. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well drained soil with little to occasional irrigation. Should prove hardy to around 27° F - plants of the species survived and re-sprouted after several nights around 25° F in January 2007. Protect from snails which permanently disfigure the leaves. We offer this incredibly limited and sought after succulent grown in two gallon containers but shipped bare root. Our plants measure approximately 1’ tall by 8” wide and will make an amazing addition to your plant collection!
