Kalanchoe beauverdii Vine (Bryophyllum beauverdii)

Beauverd's Widow's Thrill, False Hoya. This is a very unusual kalanchoe that is sure to attract attention. It's one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe schizophylla. This succulent climber has gray wiry stems and green narrow leaves turning purple-black in high light with adventitious plantlets often forming on the leaf tips. Its hanging flowers are bell-shaped and rather large compared to the slender stems. Blooming in clusters, they are an unusual grayish green color with fine purple speckles. Flowering is in the winter and spring months. The wiry stems and hooked leaves help it vigorously scramble and twine upwards. It can swallow surrounding plants if not pruned to keep it under control. So it is best to grow it on a trellis to 8 feet or in a hanging basket where it can be allowed to cascade. Grow in full sun or bright shade and allow it to get dry between waterings. It generally likes warmth with dry cool frost-free winters. It's native to south and southwestern Madagascar.

Kalanchoe beharensis

Velvet Leaf
Family: Crassulaceae
Origin: South Madagascar
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterUnusual colorOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Kalanchoe beharensis need full sun to part shade with intermediate to warm temperatures. Water sparingly at all times. The use of fertilizer is discouraged. They thrive in nutrient poor soils (equal amounts of loam and sand with gravel added for drainage). The stems are usually unbranched and may reach a height of 10 feet or more. Propagation: Kalanchoe beharensis is propagated by the removal of plants around the base of the main plant and by leaf cuttings. K.B.'Fang' is named for the stippled, fang-like texture on the underside of its leaves. A superb cultivar of beharensis. Habit of growth is similar to beharensis but the leaves are smaller. The leaves have brown margins in ideal light.
