Colours

Happy Cactus Monday.

I am noticing some lovely colours on my succulent leaves recently.

I have never seen the leaves of my Jade Plant turn yellow and red before. I could never get excited about Jade Plants before, but now I am liking it a little more.

A friend gave me this succulent a while ago, and I have no idea what it is. It started flowering recently. The flowers are quite sweet.

Here is a photo of the leaves… The plant is small (about 6 inches tall) and when the branches grow long, they fall over the side of the pot.

Is anyone able to id this succulent (See update below)? Would appreciate your response. Thanks.

Update: Thanks to Marianne, I am quite sure the above succulent is Kalanchoe Uniflora. I am really excited, having seen some amazing photos on the web. This plant has a prostate habit, thus is suitable for hanging baskets. It flowers in winter (which is right – it was winter in Australia a few weeks ago), and needs to be cut back in Spring. Fantastic to have flowers to brighten up winter.

Oh those colors are beautiful. My jade tree has never done this either. Those buds look amazing. Maybe next week we will see the blooms.

The more you look at them, the more you will discover their beauties.

Right, my Jade plant is bright green. I will watch to see if it turns color. Wonder if that is simply the one you have or has anything to do with feeding, water, light, etc. Beautiful. Thanks for coming to my blog to visit!!!

It is light that brings out the red for sure! Hey, I had never heard of K. Uniflora! How cool is this. I love how it hangs! It is really sweet with these attributes! Sorry so late with my comment, but have been chasing grandkids every day around here...LOL :)
