Description

Crassula sarcocaulis is the only truly hardy Crassula in the British climate and will reliably survive most winters, usually losing some of its leaves in the coldest periods. It will go down to at least -12C and at those temperatures it begins to defoliate and then sprouts again from its woody tree-like stems in the Spring. It also has a cunning knack of self-seeding so a large colony or miniature forest of Crassula is always a possibility.

Endemic to the dry scrubland, high veldt grasslands and rocky montane slopes of Southern Africa, Crassula sarcocaulis forms a small woody multi-branched shrub that grows 50-80cm high. It favours free-draining pockets of soil and crevices in amongst the rocks. In July, it covers itself in gem-like pinkish-red buds that open to tiny pinkish-white flowers in cluster-like cymes at the end of each leafy branchlet.

These plants are from material originally sent to us by Tropical Britain customer, Ricky Berg. Thankyou for your kindness and generosity, Ricky!

Excellent Review by Chris
Bought this along with the 2 other Crassula Sarcocaulis varieties. Its a really healthy looking plant with good root system. The pictures really dont do this plant any justice and is a real beauty. (Posted on 31/08/2016)
