Crassula Falcata


By Davids

Crassula Falcata

We have grown Crassula Falcata for several years; being from South Africa, we keep it in our frost -free (unheated) conservatory. In the summer, we put it on the patio,where its sickle-shaped, overlapping leaves make it an interesting feature, until the very eye-catching
red flowers appear in mid-summer.

For many years, we kept it in the conservatory all through the year; it would produce a few salmon-pink blooms which only lasted a short time before fading.

By contrast, this year, on the patio, it produced 15 flower heads which had a much deeper colour, and lasted much longer. It shows that we can be too fussy with our plants!

It is very easy to propagate from cuttings or from self-sewn seedlings.
