Crassula capitella 'Campfire' This stunnily colorful plant produces multi-branching, succulent, propeller-like leaves that mature from light green to bright red. It grows quickly in a prostrate manner forming mats about 6 inches tall to 2 to 3 feet tall wide. Clusters of white flowers rest on the leaves in the summer. It does best in part sun and requires shade in hotter inland sites. Although fairly drought tolerant along coast it requires regular irrigation inland. In colder climates plant this in a container, so it can be moved into a protected area when cold. Makes a nice groundcover in coastal California. The color is brightest in winter in response to long cool nights and bright sunlight. We are not sure of the species of this plant. It is often listed as a cultivar of Crassula erosula or Crassula subacaulis ssp. erosula which it closely resembles but plants in the garden at the Huntington Botanic Garden are labeled Crassula capitella 'Campfire'. We sell this unusual plant in Quart containers while supplies last.
