Why the long ears? This succulent has been given its moniker thanks to its enormous grey-green leaves that grow up to 50cm long and are covered in grey, velvet-like hairs to give it that fetching donkey’s ears appearance. Native to Madagascar, they’re liked for their offbeat shape as well as their general colouring–grey foliage with maroon splotches on the stems and branches clustering with peach-coloured buds.

You’ll find them quite easy, fast grower and their long-lasting pendent blooms rewarding, especially as hanging plants of about a metre in length and girth. Flowering kalanchoes rewarding for their brilliant long-lasting blooms. They like warmth and bright, sunny spots, moderate watering, and are happy either in containers or as part of a mass planting in a rock or dry garden. Other common names for this plant include Good Luck Leaf, Leaf of Life, Life Plant, Miracle Leaf, Palm Beachbells, Sprout Leaf Plant, Sprouting Leaf, Tree of Life.
