They are easy to grow, thrive in warm weather, prefer full sun or light shade with well-drained soil in rocky condition. Only water this plant when it is dry as it needs very little water. They need to be protected against frost.

Wonderful article on the Crassula Arborescens Undulatifolia. It looks like a hardy plant that could survive in Hawaii. The flowers are amazing. Thank-you for the wonderful pictures and article. Have a great Sunday!

Thank you dear cabbagepatch. They seem to do quite well in our tropical regions so I cannot see why they will no do so in Hawaii. Have a fabulous week and keep smiling!!

It's a very pretty plant and the flowers are beautiful - thank you for sharing, @crazymumzysa 🌻

@crazymumzysa Great submit. Hardwork pays a lot more so preserve Functioning tough!.

The plant seems vaguely familiar to me. I think we had it in our garden in Springs, Transvaal, when I was in primary school. Where do you think I might find a shrub like this?

@crazymumzysa The online market place is a wonderful industry for truth of the matter and lies. Now it is actually quite challenging to acknowledge where by the reality is.

Love succulent plants, probably because we lived in the Karoo up to the age of 13

They have some beautiful species there. Enjoy a lovely week sea-cottage.

Those juice leaves remind me of Aloe Vera. Might be from the same family?
