Kalanchoe orgyalis (Copper Spoons) – A much-branched slow growing shrub that can reach to 3-6 feet tall or taller with support but is more often seen as a smaller plant. It has spathulate ovate leaves that fold upward from the middle and are a bronze to gray color on the underside while the top side is felted with fine cinnamon colored hairs that eventually age to the same color as the lower surface. In the late winter to early spring appear the bright yellow flowers in terminal clusters at the branch tips. Plant in full sun along the coast to a light shade inland and is hardy to around 25 F. This plant is native to rocks and dry soils in southern and southwestern Madagascar.
