Yes, they are kind of unusual...if you're not familiar with the genus Kalanchoe. This plant is widely grown in California and Hawaii.

I've got one very similar, if not exactly the same. It was doing so beautifully and then it froze over the winter. It's making a comeback, but I've yet to see it flower. Thanks for sharing the flowers :)

There's many species of Kalanchoe...this species is extremely tender to cold...it's highly unlikely the roots would even survive freezing temps...several species will tolerate freezing temps for a short period of time though.

We got down to about 27 degrees, but not for an extended amount of time. I'm pretty sure I have a photo of mine on here somewhere, from before the frost got to it. If I find it I'll let you know. It made a bunch of babies, I think they came off the sides of the trunk. I'll have to snap a shot and post it to see if you can id it :) Thanks.

If this temps was only for a short period of time. The plant may come back from the roots.

This was growing in a private garden somewhere in Banker's Hill, San Diego. I'm not sure where it's located as it's been 7 years since I took the photo.

It appears you have a San Diego area code. The only place that I know would have this plant for sure would be Andersen's Nursery in Point Loma. I hope this helps.
