Offsets quickly to form wide mats. Excellent color accent in rock gardens or as a groundcover. Crassulas require very porous soil with excellent drainage. In habitat, usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring.
