These Kalanchoe sexangularis leaves have become very red in full sun. Slight green tinges are seen in the centre of especially some young leaves where the sun hasn’t had full impact (yet). Variability in leaf shape is noticeable, some of the larger leaves appearing unusually elongated.
The leaves of this plant are generally regarded by gardeners as a more important asset than its small yellow flowers. The plant grows easily from cuttings. It copes with mild cold, more than is normally experienced in its natural habitat, the warm northeast of the Lowveld (Smith and Crouch, 2009; Germishuizen and Fabian, 1982).
