Crassula rubricaulis

6 comments


Hi again, here is a set of pics of my Crassula rubricaulis flowering in the garden.

It is growing in sandy coastal soil, full sun, and I have not watered my garden for a year now! We had very little rain, 20mm over 2 days for January and 42mm in Feb over 3 days so far. Average temps 28-30C and 19C at night, humidity (60-90%)! Bit of info for those interested.

Very pretty. They would be greenhouse plants over here!

Thanks, yes I would thinks so - this one does flower late summer/autumn.

I think they probably store plenty of moisture in their foliage!

Thanks. Yes they do Paul, but they are also not loving too much water in summer.

Lots of minute features that is interesting like a hairy line on the leaf margin and small appendage on flower pedal - I love exploring these plants.
