General Information

Picked up this plant at a local supercenter's gardening section on the outdoor clearance rack. Beautiful but I have no idea what it is!
Base of plant to leaves about 5-7in. Feels slightly rubbery.

Multiple "branches" stemming from base of plant upwards in multiple directions about 10-15in from base. At the end of each branch is a divide to smaller branches, about 2-3cm.

At the end of each long and shorter branches is a tiny 4- and 5-petal flowers. Neon orange-pink in color.
Have pictures to help identification! Thanks to all! :)



Orange-Pink, resembles 'Deptford Pink'.

it does look like a Kalanchoe I have found that once you bring a Kalanchoe home from a greenhouse the branches will become more spindally and the leaves not as full, I worked at a greenhouse for 10 years and every Kalanchoe I have brougth home has done this

That does seem a lot like it!

The only differences I can see is that my stems are more branch-like whereas the Kalanchoe is straight and a solid green stem. That and my plant's flowers are not bunched together at the end of each branch stem the way the Kalanshoe's are, especially viewing lots of types and photos are you gave me that name.
But having just purchased it I don't know if the store previously trimmed it or whatnot, so I will have to let it grow and pay attention to it's water growth schedule and see what comes of it. :)
