Love pine trees and succulents equally? Well, here is a variety that allows you to have both, in a miniature-type way. The slender, rounded emerald green leaves of shrubby Crassula tetragona (mini pine tree) are arranged symmetrically along woody stems. Sprays of white flowers appear during late spring. Fallen leaves will root. In habitat, usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Good in firewise landscapes as well as in containers.
