Crassula marginalis rubra ‘Variegata’ “Calico Kitten”
Price: $6.50Sku: 0850023
The green, lemony cream and pink leaves of 'Calico Kitten' blush a beautiful rose-lilac in drought or cold. Other variations of this variegated plant can come in greens and purples. This multicolored creeper is a go-to accent for succulent dish gardens, serving as an eye-catching contrast to rose-shaped succulents such like echeverias as well as upright growers. Excellent as a hanging basket or for spilling over the sides of a rock wall or along a dry creek bed. Tuck into the nooks and crannies of a waterwise garden where frost is not a concern.
