Flowers are small, but are quite uniquely, attractively furry, bell shaped and golden ginger in color. Like other K. tomentosavarieties, ‘Teddy Bear’ is about as touch-friendly as they come. Can be planted in patio plantings or even in garden beds in areas with temperate climes. Kalanchoe tomentosa ‘Teddy Bear’ is an Altman Plants introduction.
