Crassula arborescens - Silver Dollar Jade

Product Details


Silver Dollar Jade (Crassula arborescens) (Willendow): A superstar grower whether kept indoors as a potted plant or grown outside as a dense, mounding shrub in frost-free climates. Its silvery leaves are lined in pink and dotted with hydathodes for drought tolerance (more info). They can even flush purple in response to drought and sun exposure. Indoor growing, small pots, and pruning will keep Silver Dollar Jade in a small, manageable size.

Jade is a forgiving, low maintenance grower and makes a great choice for beginners. All it needs to look great is sunlight, great drainage, and protection from hard frost. The most common issue growers face is over-watering. Water deeply, but only when the soil is completely dry. Mature, outdoor shrubs tend not to need irrigation at all.

Jade is easy to prune and any stem cuttings will readily re-root if transplanted (more info). Silver Dollar Jade produces dense clusters of white, star-shaped blossoms in some winters that turn pink as the flowers age. The silvery colors and large leaves of this variety make it a beautiful contrast in succulent arrangements.

PLEASE NOTE: C. arborescens can cause mild nausea if ingested.
