Green Jade is granny chic! This reliable, drought tolerant, easy to grow shrubby succulent can help define borders or provide a green backdrop for other succulent plants in the garden, or easily be grown as a houseplant. Crassula ovata is an evergreen, branched succulent shrub with oblong glossy green leaves and clusters of tiny five-point star-shaped white flowers with a blush of pink that appear in winter. Large trunk-like stems develop as it matures and grows up to 6 feet tall in the garden but stays smaller in containers. Provide afternoon shade in hot inland climates, or full sun along the coast. The foliage color can differ depending on growing conditions. Sun intensity and stress can induce shades of red, yellow and orange in the leaves which some may find beautiful. Use as a specimen plant in rock or succulent gardens, in borders, or in patio containers.
