Picked this up off the clearance rack at Target a couple weeks ago. It was one of those half dead easter plants that was in some kind of colored foil wrap with, I suppose, the name of the plant on it. I didn't get the colored foil wrap, so have no name. Any ideas?

The leaves are leathery and stiff, succulent like. The flowers are not a single layer of petals, but have several layers. It had evidently bloomed quite profusely, based on the many dead flowers I removed, It has started to bloom again.

Perhaps a kalanchoe of some type??

thanks in advance

Yep, it's a Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, a double one-- I think the newer double ones are called "Calandiva?" varieties. Not sure if they've got any other varieties of doubles yet.
