Unusual Crassula in that it propogates itself by growing stolon-like projections from its central rosette at the tips which grow another rosette... sort of like a Sempervivum or some Kalanchoes would do... but I haven't seen too many Crassulas grow this way. A very elegant and ornamental plant with oval, smooth very rubbery green leaves... sort of looks like an Echeveria at first. Flowers in spring are very delicate on tall central peduncle and are mostly white with a touch of pink here and there.
