I have extensively researched Crassula pellucida which belongs to the Crassulaceae the same family as Sedum for suitablity as a green roof plant.

During my research of natural populations and distribution I discovered that Crassula pellucida which grows naturally in the Durban area on the South African east coast where I live is a vary variable plant which has many natural forms growing in close proximity to one another in nature.
