KALANCHOE blossfeldiana( CALANDIVA® ORANGE, CALANDIVA® SERIES)
Plant Common Name
Calandiva® Orange Kalanchoe, Flowering Kalanchoe
Flowering kalanchoe is a succulent tender perennial from Madagascar grown for its bright colorful blooms. The cultivar Calandiva® Orange bear dense clusters of showy double flowers that resemble rose blossoms. This clump-forming evergreen has thick, glossy, oval-shaped green leaves, often with scalloped red edges. The rich orange flowers naturally appear in winter and early spring, but greenhouse grown specimens are cultivated to bloom at all times of year. Flowering continues for at least 6 weeks.
For best growth provide bright light and average well-drained soil. It is wise to protect plants from scorching afternoon sun, especially in regions where summers are very hot. Most kalanchoes are drought resistant and sensitive to root and stem rot, so water sparingly.
It can be challenging to get flowering kalanchoe to re-bloom because flowering is triggered by short days and long nights. The best method is to provide ample and consistent natural daylight, which will allow the natural blooming cycle to take place.
