Klipblom, Red crassula
Crassula is a large genus of succulent plants containing many species, including the popular Jade Plant, Crassula ovata. They are native to many parts of the globe, but cultivated varieties are almost exclusively from the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Crassulas make the most wonderful pot plants. They can also be grown indoors as house plants. Those that make excellent house plants are the glossy leaf varieties. Crassulas, given a rich, well-drained medium will grow fast and luxuriantly.
Large flat-topped clusters of bright red flowers make this drought tolerant succulent a real eye catcher. And they also make great landing pads for butterflies that love to feed from the nectar! The flower heads get to be about 15cm wide and bloom in summer. The foliage is pretty cool too. The triangular leaves overlap to form a “braided” look to the stems. The plant has many of these stems with a bloom at each tip and the plant gets to be about 50cm tall & wide. It would look great growing amongst bronzy coloured grasses, which would make a nice foliar contrast to the red blooms. It is indigenous to South Africa and grows best in well-drained soil.
