Crassula sunset magic

Magical colours

The distinguishing feature of Crassula sunset magic is its varicoloured foliage. The colours range from red to yellow – and everything in between. This makes it an ideal choice if you want to add a bit of charm to your home. This succulent has a compact, full and sturdy growth habit.


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.

Sunsets often have a brilliant ‘afterglow’ in the twilight, which changes colour constantly. Crassula sunset magic has the same brilliant colours.


Color: It likes a sunny place, but half shadow is not a problem either. Therefore it can be put in almost any place in the house you like: from the window sill on the south side to the bathroom.
Location: Light, sunny. If you have just purchased the plant do not put it in the full sun immediately, but let it get adjusted in half shadow for a few days. In the summer months the Crassula can be put outside on a sunny terrace or balcony.
Water: The plant only needs a little water and therefore can do without for a fairly long period of time. Moderate watering once a month is sufficient.
Intended for decoration and not for consumption.
