Crassula - Ovata Obliqua

Crassula - Ovata Obliqua


Crassula ovata 'Obliqua' is a succulent shrub with thick fleshy green leaves with pointed tips. It usually grows over 1 foot (30 cm) tall. Leaves are flushed with royal purple at the edges when exposed to direct sunlight. They are attached at a more upright angle to the branch than the leaves of Crassula ovata. Flowers are star-shaped, pink or white, and appear in showy clusters at the ends of the branches from late winter to early spring


Crassula prefer bright sun, though they can tolerate afternoon shade. For those varieties with color variegation, such as red or pink margins, brighter light will help to deepen these shades even further


Water moderately when plants are in growth (April to September), but more sparingly when dormant (autumn and winter) - once or twice a month may be sufficient. Allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again.
