This is a native Australian plant,Grevillia Robyn Gordon. It is a tough plant. Flowers through out the year.
Kalanchoe beharensis also called Elephant ear because of the size and grey colour of its leaves. It is a giant Kalanchoe. It is grown from a leave cutting I received 20 Years ago. It is from a lady also called "Dawn". She too was a great gardener, living in the Tweed Area in NSW. I remember you too, Dawn.
This one I received too as a tiny plantlet from V. I am not sure of its name as there are so many similar looking ones. Donkey ears, Kalanchoe Gastonis- Bonnieri bought at the Farmers Market. It had 50 cm long flower stalks with little red bells. After flowering it dies. But there are always lots of baby plants. It is easy to propagate but is not invasive. I gave some to my gardening friends.
Believe it or not:
One to rot and one to grow, one for the pigeon and one for the crow.
