Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Kell On Dec 3, 2007, Kell from Northern California, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

This is a very entertaining succulent. At first it looks like pink tinged rosettes and then later the leaves becomes pagoda shaped and turn red. It flowers at the ends of the 6 to 10 inch long pagoda chains. Once it finishes blooming, the plant falls apart and the individual leaves hit the ground and root, making new plants. Drought tolerant.

Nice looking very angular pogoda-like Crassula with lots of nice color (pinks, dark greens, blue-greens) but I noticed it all over the Huntington garden xeriscape sections so obviously it is a pretty invasive species. CAreful where you plant it.

Flowers in summer and plant looks leggy and weedy then.. but reverts back to its more ornamental, compact form in winter.

This is a very variable species/subspecies, at least from what has been described to me. There are forms of this subspecies that are literallly 4-5x the size of the plants described above- hard to believe they are in the same subspecies as they are thick, less invasive and quite different looking. That plant has been added as Crassula capitella sp. thyrsiflora var. giant form. Hope this doesn't mess everyone up.
