there are two (at least) distinct forms of this variegated plant- the square form with rounded leaves and multiple colors, and the larger, bicolor form with pointier, thinner leaves. Both forms are represented in the photos above, and both are excellent potted plants- only improving with age. However the multicolor form seems to show a bit more cold hardiness, at least in my garden.

Thanks for the pics and I.D. palmbob. I wondered what this plant's name was. It is a very easy,hardy,plant. Full sun,regular summer water.Mine was not bothered by the 07 freezes-four nights of about 30- 32.
The best of the "Pagoda" type Crassulas i think.

Relatively fast growing "stacked" Crassula, some reversion to the green form, needs sun to color up.
