Product Details

Highlights

Ripple Jade (Crassula arborescens undulatifolia) (Tolken, 1975): The waviest of the Jade Plants. Its waxy, blue-green leaves can flush fuchsia at the edges when stressed with full sun, drought, or cold temperatures. In the wild, it grows en masse on rocky slopes in South Africa, but it also works well as a landscaping shrub in frost-free climates and a potted house plant everywhere else.

When given room to grow, Ripple Jade will form a dense, mounding shrub up to 3.0' tall. It responds well to pruning, however, which reveals its thick, succulent branches for a tree-like, bonsai appearance. Flowers are a rare sight on this Jade, but it can produce clusters of white, star-shaped blossoms in late winter.

Ripple Jade is very drought-tolerant, but it does need bright sunshine, great drainage, and protection from hard frosts. Be sure to plant in pots with drainage holes and water deeply only when the soil is completely dry. This plant is a natural subspecies, not a hybrid, and thus is a very strong, low-maintenance grower. It even propagates readily from cuttings and offsets!

PLEASE NOTE: C. arborescens sap can be mildly irritating to skin and cause nausea if ingested.
