Traditional Medicinal Uses of Kalanchoe rotundifolia
Indications: Administered to people only. Applied in a magical sense. Caution: Harmful to people or animals.
Kalanchoe rotundifolia is a sparely and slenderly branched, erect succulent with blue-ish green leaves that can reach a height of 1m. The leaves are generally egg-shaped but the plant varies quite a lot in leaf colour, shape and margins which may be rounded, toothed or lobed. Between Autumn and Mid-summer Kalanchoe rotundifolia bears orange to scarlet four-lobed flowers in clusters on stalks high above the foliage. It can tolerate full sun but often does better in semi-shaded positions in a rockery or succulent garden. (Wildflower Nursery)
