Crassula ovata, the jade plant, is a hardy perennial, evergreen succulent plant. It has round glossy green leaves, and a shiny attractive trunk. It is a decorative container plant, resembling a miniature tree when well grown. It can be used as an indoor plant in a well lit spot, and as a garden plant. Tolerates dry conditions.
Crassula likes a sunny to part shaded position, and a gritty well drained soil. Do not overwater. Strong hot sun can burn the leaves. Frost tender.
