Plants in The Succulent Choice R  range have been selected for their striking appearance and their ability to grow well with minimal attention, even in difficult situations.  They are generally very drought and moderately frost hardy, requiring little more than lots of sun, free draining soil or potting mix, small amounts of fertilizer (recommended is Osmocote Outdoor Trees and Shrubs slow release) from time to time and occasional deep watering during prolonged dry conditions.  


There are over 300 species of Crassula encompassing a wide range of habit and form.   Their heights range from a few centimeters to over 1.5m. They come from the southern continents of Australia, South America and Southern Africa, with the majority coming from the latter.  Crassula perfoliata minor grows to around 35cm tall and 25cm wide with stunning red flowers that contrast with the soft grey foliage in summer and early autumn.


The Succulent Choice range of plants will help to bring years of pleasure and enjoyment to you and your garden.  Collect as many as you can and plant in their own special beds or in those dry hard to fill spots.   The Propellor Plant makes an excellent tub plant or can be used in rockeries o where it will add color and form.
