We love this plant for its easy care nature and unusual almost alien-like appearance providing interesting structure and shape. It works well as a potted plant or as a hanging plant.

Crassula marginalis Rubra ‘Variegata’ is a gorgeous looking plant with heart-shaped variegated leaves. The leaves are a combination of different shades of green; from pale green to yellow-green, and different shades of pinks and creams.  The plant trails and looks great in hanging baskets or really tall planters. 

In its native environment in South Africa, it lives in arid and dry landscapes. It propagates by breaking up easily in the wild when the wind or animals brush past and break small pieces, down to a single leaf away from the mother plant. The small cuttings easily propagate again in the soil spreading the plant far and wide. The main threat to the species is urban development. 

In its native habitat, it can be found growing in rocks in wide-open spaces and on cliff edges and does best in bright indirect light. 

Crassula marginalis Rubra ‘Variegata’ make a great houseplant gift for friends or family - surprise them with rainforest style! If you are giving Crassula marginalis Rubra ‘Variegata’ as a gift, make sure you include your message at the basket stage.  We’ll deliver the houseplant along with a free, handwritten card - and we’ll leave out the paperwork with the price on!

Crassula marginalis Rubra ‘Variegata’ propagate by breaking easily, we will ship and wrap as carefully as we can but it's inevitable that some parts of the plant will break away from the mother plant. These can be easily propagated and it's natural and normal the plant soon grows larger once settled. Please only buy if you understand it's normal (and think it's fun propagating plants!).
