Crassula arborescens ssp. undulatifolia (Ripple Jade) A compact dense succulent shrub to 3 to 4 feet tall with stout stems tipped with bluish-grey erect leaves that are twisted with rippled slightly purplish edges and compact inflorescence of white star-shaped flowers in late spring into early summer (or at least this is when we are told it blooms but we haven't seen it). Plant in full coastal sun or light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Hardy to around 25 F. A very nice dense garden plant that can also be trimmed out to expose branching structure as a bonsai-like subject or used as an indoor house plant in bright light. This plant is distinct from the more common and stouter Crassula arborescens ssp. arborescens with thinner more elongated leaves and is also quite different from Crassula 'Blue Bird', which is sometimes listed as a cultivar of Crassula arborescens ssp. undulatifolia. This plant is native to the Klein Winterhoek Mountains of the Eastern Cape in South Africa. This plant was a International Succulent Introduction (ISI) as ISI 2005-16 that was from rooted cuttings taken from the from the Huntington Botanic Garden's plant HBG#84988 that was from a plant collected by Ernst van Jaarsveld at the type locality, Sapkamma Station, East Cape, South Africa. It is variously mislabeled in nurseries with such cultivar names as 'Blue Waves', 'Blue Curls', 'Jitters' and is sometime listed as a Crassula ovata cultivar.  The information provided on this webpage is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library and that information that we have found about it on reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations in our nursery of crops of this plant, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information aiding others in growing Crassula arborescens ssp. undulatifolia.
