No I got this thing from a lady that is from Mexio and when she went back for a visit last summer she brought some back She called it a "Donkey Ear" But I don't know the real name You can see the leaves in the photo forum of my green house

Can you show the blooms from another angle? I first thought cigar plant, but the leaves don't look right to me. And the color is off.

I think it is a strelitzia on the right and a Peperomia on left (the little plant with variegated leaves)

The plant in the front looks cool =)

Whatever it is I absolutely love it...
would love to get one of these plants, what kind of climate does it grow in? I take it that it's not too hardy since you have it in your greenhouse.

Eclipse It could very well be a kalanchoe but it does now look like any of the others I have. The leaves on this thing are up to 12" long with small plantlets on the ends of the leaves. I have several kalanchoes even a silver but none like this

Yes, it is kalanchoe! I have one similar to it that has small white blooms, and was surprised to see a larger one at my friend's house a couple of years. The stem of reddish blooms appeared during the fall or winter on hers, and she kept them on a patio in Austin for several years. She gave me some, and mine didn't make it through one winter. The leaves on my small one are about 4", but hers are as you say, near 12".

MaRose this is not a vine. It only gets about 2 ft. I had the cross vine at one time and those things will get 100 feet tall if you let them They tried to eat all the pine trees on the place until I got rid of them. PS. How is your rose doing?

MaVie, it confused me, too, because the blooms look different in person.
