Crassula multicava is a good, soft spreading succulent for dry shade and grows well under oaks, pines, and other trees. Lush looking evergreen mounds of flat, oval, deep green leaves in opposite pairs on vertical stems form an emerald carpet that conceals fallen tree leaves. In winter, dainty 4-point star-shaped white flowers emerge from pink buds in showy sprays on reddish stems held above the foliage for a magical, fairy dust effect in the garden. Fairy Crassula is drought tolerant, low maintenance, and easy to grow. Tolerant of poor soil and deep shade, use in rock gardens, slopes, or in mass. Crassula multicava can rapidly spread by plantlets that develop in flower axils after flowering; or take root from leaves that fall or break off but can easily be controlled or removed thanks to its shallow roots.
