Crassula afra f. variegata


This very interesting succulent Crassula afra f. variegata or more commonly known as the elephant bush. This variety is used extensively as a succulent shrub in California due to the size it grows to, a size of 2 to 3 feet in height and a spread of up to 10 feet in ideal conditions. Landscapers love to use it as it creates an amazing ground cover that suppresses weeds and survives extremely hot and dry conditions.

It’s an incredibly easy plant to grow, especially indoors, as they respond well to little care, to keep them compact keep them in a small pot and prune once a year, protect from frosts.

Sometimes seen listed as Portulacaria afra f. variegata.
