Ripple Jade – Crassula Arborescens undulatifolia




Crassula Arborescens or as famously call Ripple Jade is a species of succulent plant belonging to the family Crassulaceae.

It is an endemic plant of the Western Cape Province, South Africa.

It is slow-growing and reaches a height of 0.6 – 1.2 meters, with a thick trunk of about 30cm.

The leaves are fleshy, rounded, whitish-green.

The most striking thing about Crassula Arborescens is that its leaves have a reddish color throughout the perimeter of the leaf.

That reddish tint becomes more acute in winter due to the cold.

It blooms towards winter, producing white or pink and small flowers, grouped in inflorescences.
