Do you have a photo of the foliage (or a description)? I have a species in mind.

It certainly looks fantastic!

I don't have a pic of the foliage. I know I've posted pics before of this plant; however, I can't find them.

I thought it may be K. tubiflora. The leaves look the same.

I think it's Bryophyllum delagoensis (or Kalanchoe delagoensis). It grows every here.

There's so many species of Kalanchoe which grow here, it's not funny. One of my favorites is K. baharensis. It grows huge here. Wikipedia says it grow to 1.5 m (or 5'). Not true! Here it grows to more than 20' (6.1 m) in the ground. My plants are ~ 8' (2.5 m) in a pot.

I would agree with K.tubiflora and/or Bryophyllum delagoensis (or Kalanchoe delagoensis). There is so much confusion over the naming of these plants!

Whatever, they look stunning!

I know the scientific names of plants have gotten so complex over the last 25 years. It's crazy!

I do like to list the proper names for the plants and trees, though.

Very striking whatever it is called.....

Yes, it grows wild in many places and only blooms in winter.

I really do like the flowers. :>))
