Flapjacks. Also known as paddle plant, flapjacks, desert cabbage, this is a species of Kalanchoe native to South Africa. This Kalanchoe has large paddle-shaped leaves which redden beautifully from the margins in direct sunlight. Leaves can grow to be 6 inches long and 3-4 inches wide. It will form a lovely clump over time. A succulent plant forms a basal rosette of large, rounded, fleshy, stalkless leaves, which are grayish-green with red margins, covered with a white powdery bloom. Unique rounded, silvery-green leaves have a dramatic red blush from the leaf edges flushing throughout most of the leaf.
