Lizard Skin Crassula Overview

Crassula tecta is a diminutive and attractive grey-leaved succulent from the Crassulaceae family. Originating from the Cape Provinces of South Africa, this plant enjoys full sun and well-draining soil. Easy to grow and makes a great pot plant. It tends to branch at the base, producing rosettes of grey-green leaves with white markings, giving it a stone-like appearance and looking whitish-grey overall. It has a low-growing habit, forming clumps and not typically exceeding 10cm in height. Flowers are small and sweetly scented, coloured white with yellow centres.
