Kalanchoe beharensis (Velvet elephant ear) - This is a slow growing succulent tree-like shrub can grow to an eventual height of 12 ft. with an equal spread though is typically seen much smaller (shown in background). It has thick stems that are covered sharp angled leaf scars that likely evolved to protect the stems that hold large, undulated and folded, olive-green, slightly-triangular leaves covered in sort brown stellate (branched) hairs that gives the leaves a soft, velvety texture. Once mature, it produces small, greenish yellow flowers in winter. Plant in full sun or light shade. It is frost tender and needs protection much below 30° F and is drought tolerant. A great sculptural succulent for the succulent garden or in a large pot. Shown here with Anigozanthos - yellow, Echeveria, Agave 'Blue Glow' and Protea.
