Crassula arborescens occurs widespread in arid landscape from Namaqualand to the Eastern Cape Province. The plants have a somewhat similar appearance than the well known Crassula ovata, but the leaves are blue-gray and larger than those of the latter.
This shrub has a thick succulent stem with many branches and can grow up to about 1.5 meters tall.
The dense clusters of white flowers occur in spring and summer.
The cultivation of Crassula arborescens is very easy. Good drainage and full sun is preferred for optimal results.
Propagation is usually by cuttings of the branches or leaves, which easily root.
