Crassula lycopodiodes "Watch Chain"


Crassula lycopodioides (watch chain) is a small, vertical-growing succulent with pointed tiny light-green leaves, densely packed around the thin stem, resembling scales. It grows to be intricate bush up to a foot tall. The flowers are little and yellow-green. It is a good specimen for an undersea-themed dish garden. Valuable accent in a mixed arrangement as a tidy contrast to rosette-shaped succulents. Also serves as a unique, small ground cover in a rock garden.3.5 " pot
