I just got this succulent plant as a gift. It has small four-petal yellow flowers in large clumps above the large leaves.

Can some one please tell me what it is?

    It's a Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, commonly just called Kalanchoe. It likes bright light, regular watering and feeding, and it doesn't like cold. For more details, see this other question

  • The wikipedia entry has pink flowers, the duplicate link in the comment above shows something with no flowers and the leaves look different, how sure are you that this is that plant? ..... keep in mind, I know nothing about plants. Thanks!

    The Wikipedia article also says that the flowers can be "red, purple, orange, yellow and white"

    Hi Naill and Kevinsky, want share points? I guessed just a kalanchoe, but not the variety - The credit is yours =) Commented Apr 24, 2013 at 1:46

It is a Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, as Niall and Kevinsky said. I found this very nice image, very similar to that in the question
