Thank you for your comments. This is a form of Kalanchoe, 'Kalanchoe Pinnata' I believe, known as the Life Plant. Although not a native plant it was formerly quite common in south Florida as a naturalized plant and now becoming scarce in the wild. My plants seem to have survived the freeze. Lowest temps here were just at or below freezing for a few hours yesterday morning. dd

A beautiful photo though sad that they froze. I hope they will make it. I wonder what kind of buds these are?

Such devastation by the record cold. I heard that the animals in the southern Florida zoos are suffering and the zoo in Miami had to close.
I also heard that the tropical fish have died from the freezing water. This is a terrible disaster!
Hope you get a warmup soon.
Stay warm.
Thanks for your photo.
