CRASSULA

Most are from South Africa. All have succulent foliage; many have strange geometric forms. Need good drainage. May not survive winter frosts without overhead protection. To cope with extreme summer heat in desert zones 12 and 13, grow in pots or coolest sites (such as a northern exposure).

Crassula mucosa

Leafy, branching, erect stems to 1 ft. high and wide, closely packed with tiny green leaves in four rows; effect is that of braided chain or of some strange green coral. Very small, inconspicuous greenish flowers. Easy to grow and useful in dish gardens.
