The remarkeble "Variegated Rosary Vine" with each fleshy heart shaped leaf bordered in creamy pink. Marketed as 'Lady Heart' in Asian nurseries.

Weird four-sided winged succulent sectioned stems; small leaves soon decidious; green flowers. Favorite of succulent collectors; although sensitive to chill and seldom tolerant of high humidity.

"Blue Bird Jade" Bluish-gray elongate twisted leaf pairs stand erect on much branched pseudo-tree.

Product Code: 58721
All the tumbling beauty of the thickly foliaged species, plus the succulent stems are enclosed by fused oval leaves quite brightly margined white, a pinkish rim emerges in high light. As the roots are quite shallow, be sure to grow this in a very shallow container. Quite charming--the plant itself is never shallow.
Product Code: 60262
Pairs of wide flat oval hazy green leaves peppered and dimpled in purple-red on thick stems; mid-winter masses of starry pinkish-white blossoms sometimes in such numbers to often topple these pinkish stems, thus the "Fairy Crassula" in the European nursery trade. Very reliable mid-winter blossom sprays are hopelessly c...
Product Code: 60263
Wide fleshy succulent leaves with lime centers; showy winter sprays of tiny white starflowers are quite attractive.
Product Code: 60255

This rare "Silver Jade Tree" may be more sensitive to chill than the other cultivars. Not really silver, the blunted quite thick leaves are of a pallid rine-gray tone. Another unusual Hummel selection rarely offered as grows very slowly and deliberately, developing gnarled "character" trunks prized by succulent bonsai ...
Product Code: 56954
"Ripple Leaf Jade." Rather unusual new selection of "Jade" with slimmer leaves that undulate along the edges and have a powdery tomentus on the leaf. Obviously needs a bright window or under lights. We are not sure of the parentage of this yet. It might have both Crassula arborescens and Crassula ovata in its blood.&nb...
Product Code: 60641
"Pink Flowering Jade" Vigorous cultivar with open rounded clusters of starry pale satiny pink two-tone blossoms--petals longer and much narrower than most C. arborescens cultivars.

Product Code: 60284
"Trumpet Jade" Stiff short woody trunks support tufts of bizarre leaves so fused that only a curious trumpet fish-mouth remains at the tip--rather like E.T.'s fingers! The stems redivide constantly giving an old specimen a rather hemispherical outline unlike the more terete 'Hobbit' cultivar below. The cute name once a...
