I'm back! Help me name this plant!


These strange semi-succulents were on every terrace at the Belvedere where we stayed. I really liked them, though at first I thought ours was dead. I imagine some of you Southerners and Southwesterners will know this. I have never seen it offered in any greenhouse around here.

BTW, for those who would like to see more Sicily images, here's a link: Taormina images. You won't have to sign in, join up, sell your soul, or anything.

I'd guess it might be lavender scallops (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi), or some other species of kalanchoe.

Indeed, according to images on Dave's Garden, you are correct. I have never seen a kalanchoe like that.

Thanks, Nan!
