My Variegated Jade 09'

My Variegated Jade 09' (Crassula ovata (Jade tree) tricolor)

Doesn't do much but get bigger, but my garden needed a comparison photo. :-)

This is a very interesting looking plant. I've never seen a varigated jade.

It's been growing more compact, and very very slowly. I need to get into the greenhouse it came from and collect a photo of the parent plant. Huge!

Great pot! I think I have one similar. Jade is what family? I had a peperomia that looked similar once. But it died. You've inspired me to get out my plant book. maybe I have something in here I could even take a picture of. :)

Family home evening project. :-)

Crassulaceae. Huge family, all the stonecrop, jade, sempervivum, sedum..... Looks like peperomia is a Piperaceae, my variegate is Peperomia magnolialfolia variegata. You got me looking and this plant is Crassula ovata Tricolor. My other two are Crassula argentea, just green. :-) They are both succulent families. My favorite are living stones which I would love to find, and a GOY fav is the houseleek. You could naturaize any of these there I think, Greensis, and they'd bloom each year in spring.

I'd like to see what your amarylis is doing!
