Product Details

Highlights

Crassula rupestris (Thunberg): An easy grower with a unique form. This soft succulent grows as a small, branching shrublet in rocky crevices in South Africa and Namibia. Its thick, triangular leaves appeared skewered by their long, narrow stems that grow up to 12.0" long, bending and trailing from containers.

The leaves of C. rupestris are a minty color with contrasting green borders. When grown in bright sun they can even develop a red leaf margin. Look for spring blooms of tiny white to pink blossoms clustered into dense heads.

Like other soft succulents, C. rupestris needs to be indoors before temperatures drop below freezing. It should be in a pot with a drainage with gritty, well-draining soil. Water deeply but only when the soil is dry and keep near a sunny window to maintain dense, colorful growth.
