If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Kalanchoe marnieriana

Kalanchoe marnieriana (Marnier's Kalanchoe) - A gray leafed succulent subshrub that grows to 12 to 18 inches tall by 2 to 3 feet feet wide with flat blue-green rounded leaves that are arranged oppositely and flatten together facing toward the branch tips like pages in a book and turn to a pink color in the winter. The rose-pink to red flowers emerge and dangle off reddish stalks at the end of the branches throughout the year - a particularly nice combination in winter when flowers are present above the pink foliage. Plant in full to sun to light shade in a well drained soil - in "Dry Climate Gardening with Succulents" by Debra and James Folsom, John Trager, Joe Clements and Nancy Scott (Pantheon Books 1995) it is noted that this plant tolerates shade better than other Kalanchoe. It requires little irrigation and is cold hardy to 25F to 28F (USDA Zone 9b). This plant comes from moist rocky sites in northeast Madagascar. It is also closely related to Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi and K. laxifolora and is called Bryophyllum marnierianum by some authors. It was named by Hermann Jacobsen to honor French botanical explorer Julien Marnier-Lapostolle. This description is based on our research of Kalanchoe marnieriana and our observations of it growing in the nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We would appreciate getting feedback from anyone who has any additional information about this plant, even if they disagree with what we have written.
