I wonder this nice-looking succulent could stand in a 5a zone... except in a greenhouse. Anyone here would have some experiment to share ?

Much denser, green and smaller-leaved plant than the standard C arborescens. Looks almost like C ovata. Leaves very thin and undulated, relative to normal Crassula arborescens. Pretty sure this plant cannot tolerate the zone 5 listed above (soon to be corrected, I hope).
