Flowering Outdoor Plant with Rubbery Leaves

I'm looking for the name of a flowering outdoor plant that is rubbery feeling. Any ideas?

I just saw those flowers at Lowes...

Go, call or click to lowes.com

They are really cool plants....It feels fake but they are truly beautiful.

The name you are seeking could be 'kalanchoe' (it has 4 pronunciations: kall-ANN-cho, kall-and-CHO-ee, kall-ANN-ko, and kall-ann-KO-ee). There are many varieties; they are hardy, drought-tolerant perennials. I have one that looks like orangey-green saucers stacked up on their edges (it's K. thyrsifolia, if you want to take a look). Check out www.DavesGarden.com and do a plant search using 'kalanchoe.'

Good luck -- and let us know what you find!
