Crassual Ovata Tricolor Jade Succulent is often referred to as Jade Tree or Jade Plant. The green and white leaves are rounded with a slight point on the tip. Depending on the time of year and how much light your Crassula is getting will determine whether or not a red or pink rim will form on the edge of the leaves. More direct sun light will help develop more color.
This South African native prefers dry conditions and loose, well drained soil. Too much water will cause the stem to rot and attract bugs. In late fall or early winter, clusters of star-like white or pink flowers bloom that can be quite fragrant. Tricolor Jade can be pinched which will cause the plant to branch more which creates a more full looking plant. Succulents tend to be drought tolerant and prefer poor soil conditions that drain very well. Some varieties can take a light freeze. Try succulents in a rock garden or in a succulent wall. Some even do well in a terrarium.
