A wonderful textural succulent which spreads to grow into an intricate bush, reaching around 30cm tall and about as wide, though its size is very variable. It features tiny light green leaves which overlap to stack tightly around stems, which begin erect but droop over under their own weight. Flowers are small and pale chartreuse in colour.
An excellent small scale groundcover that has a mossy look about it, but also commonly grown as a houseplant. It always looks neat and is wonderful for indoor spaces as it does not appear too wild. Stunning in succulent arrangements or spilling out of hanging baskets and easy to care for. Provide a well-draining spot in the garden in full coastal sun to light shade or indoors in a sunny spot. It has low water needs, and should be allowed to dry out between waterings. It does not appreciate being both cold and wet.
Commonly called “Watch Chain” as its interlocking leaves are thought to resemble jewellers’ pocket watch links. Other names include: Princess Pine, Clubmoss Crassula, Zipper Plant, and Rattail Crassula. Native to South Africa and Namibia.
