Crassula cv. ‘Gollum’: Jade Plants

The Crassula cv. ‘Gollum’ is a very compact plant considered a hybrid of C. x portulacea by some experts.


It is a small sparingly branched, shrubby, erect, succulent, that can slowly grow up to 50-80 cm tall by 30-60 cm wide. Leaves are tubular, trumpet shaped, each of them tipped with a “suction cup”, 4-ranked [decussate], smooth, deep glossy green in color with very light spotting usually with bright red leaf margins. Crassula ‘Gollum’ is great for container culture and Bonsai cultivation, and the trunk becomes very thick with age and develops interesting patterns.
