Crassula is a large genus of succulent plants belonging to the Crassulaceae family. They contain a large number of species, including the popular Jade plant, the Jade Necklace and Miniature Pine. They are native to many parts of the globe, but cultivated varieties originate almost exclusively from species from the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
Crassulas are usually propagated by stem or leaf cuttings. Most cultivated forms tolerate drought, heat and some frost.
