Crassula capitella is a variable species native to southern Africa. With a moderately fast growth rate. It is sub shrubby succulent that grows up to 40 cm tall when flowering. The narrow and pointed stacked leaves forms a characteristic spirally arranged or 4-ranked rosette and the rosette that bloom will die. It blooms in the summer and forms a spike-like inflorescence with small star-like white flowers that are tinged with pink. This is a monocarpic species, meaning that it dies after flowering. Although their white flowers are attractive, each time they bloom, a rosette dies.
