ISI 2015-22. Crassula perfoliata var. minor ‘Lime Green’ Out of Stock

This popular species still is better known by its synonym C. falcata, in reference to the laterally compressed leaves that curve like a falcon’s beak. These are arranged in four ranks earning it the common name of propeller plant. The flat-topped to rounded thyrses of scarlet, clove-scented flowers are attractive to butterfly pollinators and make an elegant contrast to the normally gray foliage. In this selection, however, the new foliage is a vivid chartreuse making for a slightly more charged display. Divisions of HBG 104191, a plant received from the late Seymour Linden in Feb, 2010. $6.
