Crassula arborescens

For sale by P.Kennedy

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

In a few years this tree like succulent takes on a "Bonsai-like" appearance (only easier to maintain!). May need potting into a large terracotta half pot/bowl as it gets top heavy. Smaller branches will need pruning to keep a more tree like form.
