Compact, curly leaves
Crassula curly green can easily be distinguished from other succulents on account of its light green, greyish leaves that appear to sport a reddish ribbon at the edge. The leaves are compact and a bit curly, which have earned this plant an apt nickname: ‘blue waves’.
- Extraordinary colored leaf in a curly shape
- Bushy Crassula which steals the show at home
- The grey-green leaf contrasts beautifully with the red leaf edge
Born in South Africa
The Crassula belongs to the family of the Crassulaceae. This plant grows in the dry and rough countryside of South Africa, including the Karoo. The Karoo is a vast semi-desert, which is virtually entirely without trees. The plant stores water in its thick leaves, which enable it to withstand (long) droughts. The Latin word ‘Crassus’ means thick. The South African flora belongs to the most important floras in the world. No less than 10% of all known types of plants can be found here.
