Kalanchoe luciae is a rosette forming succulent with disc-shaped leaves and several branches that can reach up to 2m tall when flowering. The inflorescence can be distinguished from other similar Kalanchoe species as it is not as tightly packed and is broken into sections along the stalk. It flowers during spring and autumn with small greenish yellow or greyish white flowers.
It is ideal in full sun in a rockery or even a mixed succulent garden bed. It can grow in shade but the more sun it receives the more vibrant the colours become.
Kalanchoe luciae is closely related to Kalanchoe thyrsiflora and the two can be easily confused.
