73 and still gardening

Panda Plant

The movie Kung-fu Panda amuses me and every time I look at this kalanchoe, the image of Po appears in my mind. The brown-pointed markings on its leaves make this succulent  Kalanchoe tomentosa  (commony known as the Panda Plant) pretty to grow as a house plant.

Its scientific name tomentosa indicates that  its leaves are entirely convered with dense matting of hairs, giving it a furry look.
