Kalanchoe Marmorata. Penwiper Plant.
The Kalanchoe Marmorata is a very beautiful but strange looking evergreen succulent. Attractive obovate or nearly circular leaves with wavy edges grow almost vertical, gradually reaching a height of around 4ft tall in the wild with spawling offsets from the base. Usually green when young the leaves become a glaucous creamy-grey colour developing to be mottled with purple blotches. Upright florescenses occasionally occur bearing delicate starry white flowers which sometimes can be tinged with pink in Springtime. These are four petalled and can be tubular or bell shaped.
Easy to grow it makes a very unique and pretty houseplant in the UK given plenty of light. They can stand outside through summer but best kept frost free.
