Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is a glabrous, bushy, evergreen and perennial succulent plant which (in 2–5 years) can reach an ultimate height of between 12-18 inches and an ultimate spread of 4-20 inches. The plant has green, shiny and textured glossy foliage which stays green all year round. The scallop-edged and ovate leaves are arranged in an opposite/subopposite fashion, are simple in type with crenate margins and an oblong shape. The arrangement of the veins in a leaf (venation) can be absent or very hard to see; the leaf blades are 2-4 inches long. Kalanchoe blossfeldiana flowers in late autumn to early winter. Each flower has four petals and can be one of a wide variety of colors, from the dark reds and pinks to oranges, golds and whites.
Parts of Kalanchoe blossfeldiana are poisonous if ingested.
