Very cool plant!
It is Bryophyllum daigremontianum, syn. Kalanchoe daigremontiana

Spider I love all the pictures. The first 4 look like they would be great in a large open area. If you still have them in the summer I would love to have a couple of starts to plant on the other side of the path from me.

This is the area I would like to start planting a natural style garden. The land that this complex was built on was at one time farm land that has returned to nature I would like to put in a lot of natural free growing plantings that will need little care once I leave. We do have a large rabbit population, so I am looking for plantings that will survie them. I f you have any ideas of what other plantings I can use please let me know. When I saw your pictures of the Mother of a thousand I thought they would look great in as mass plantings spaced out to a few areas back from the path.

Wow what lovely pics Spider, that Mother of 1000's is a real menace over here. I pull it out every time I see it. In the right climate (mine lol) it's definitely invasive......love the colours Sharon!
