Crassula ovata 'Obliqua' (Variegated Jade Plant) - A many-branching succulent shrub to 4-6 feet tall with thick stems that hold pale-green, obovate pointed leaves that are streaked with a white variegation. New growth sometimes has a hint of pink over the white. White star-like flowers bloom in clusters within the foliage in the fall. Plant in part sun to full sun in coastal gardens. Tolerates very dry conditions but looks best with occasional water and is not hardy much below 30F but can survive a short duration of temperatures to around 26-28F. A good container plant and in areas with cold winters can be brought inside and not irrigated during winter months. This form is sometimes called 'Tricolor' because of the tinge of pink on the new growth.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Crassula ovata 'Obliqua'.
