This striking succulent is native to southern Africa. This happy specimen was photographed from directly overhead—its leaves were held close and vertical. Kalanchoe luciae or paddle plant is a branched, succulent, biennial herb. It can grow to a metre and half in height or more. The large basal leaves(6-18(23·5) x 5·5-15 cm.) are often held tightly and vertically like stacked plates, as in this image. The leaves are covered in a white powder that protects them from extreme sun. In cooler weather they are blushed red.
Sorry for the delay of this post and to those who saw it when it first released with the incorrect plant ID. Thanks to the initial commenters for pointing this out.
