Crassula ovata, more commonly known as the Jade Plant or Money Plant, is a fabulous succulent that’s said to be lucky, attracting wealth, and is incredibly popular all over the world, and deservedly so!
The shiny leaves of this evergreen, bushy plant are a rich jade green in colour with a slight red tinge to their edges. Although slow growing, Crassula can reach 2m in height, so it makes a bold and dramatic specimen houseplant, and as it loves the sun, you’ll find the perfect spot on a bright windowsill or in conservatory. During late summer, clusters of lightly scented, small star-shaped white or pale pink flowers appear all over the plant.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
One of the easiest houseplants to look after, Crassula needs nothing more than a regular feed during the growing season, and little water.
Supplied as a potted plant in a 12cm pot, reaching a height of 2m (6½ft) and spread of 1.25m (4ft).
