Thanks a lot, Ava. Kalanchoe prolifera is spot on!

Here's what the president of the San Diego Horticultural Society sent me on this plant:
"It is a kalanchoe. It has taken over whole landscapes in Hawaii. It usually doesn't look like the photo. This one is stressed. I can give you lots of babies if you want some. It isn't invasive here since it needs regular water. It can get 6 feet tall. Plantlets form on the old bloom stalk."

I haven't given you a very good reference on this because I'm pretty sure it is a cultivar, not a plant that grows in the wild, so the only stuff I could find was from nurseries.
