It looks like Crassula portulacea, spoon jade, Shrek ears jade

San Francisco, CA

that is the Hummel creation: Crassula argentea 'Gollum'. It was created long before "Schrek".

Crassula argentea cv Gollum for comparison

Acton, CA(Zone 8b)

I think this is just Crassula ovata Gollum. Or has this cultivar been moved to another species?

San Francisco, CA

Bob is correct; it is C. ovata now.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

It would seem that C argentea and C portulacea are both considered synonyms for C ovata

Rome, Italy

Palmbob is correct! It is a Crassula ovata cv. Gollum.
