Crassula sarmentosa is a perennial succulent that forms a neat, rounded, sub-shrub with slightly toothed succulent leaves. While the leaves are dark green if grown in shade, the plant becomes highly ornamental in dry, sunny conditions, the leaves turning to an almost neon green blending to pink and yellow, with dark red margins. Flowers are tiny, white to pinkish, star-shaped in dense, branched heads. Crassula sarmentosa is of easy cultivation and is a very rewarding bedding plant for full sun and outdoor rockeries, pot plant and green roof plant.
