Crassula oblicua cv. Lemon & Lime (Variegated Jade Plant) is a spectacular slow growing cultivar close in appearance to the common jade plant but with shiny cream stripes on spoon-shaped leaves. Just as its all green cousin it is a many-branching succulent shrub with a stout trunk up to 120-180 cm tall.
Cultivation and Propagation: Crassula oblicua cv. Lemon & Lime can make a nice low succulent shrublet in the garden, does well in containers, and makes a good houseplant. It is widely grown and not difficult to cultivate. They thrive with bright light and ample airflow. Tolerates very dry conditions but looks best with occasional water.
Frost Tolerance: Protect from frost to prevent scarring. It requires a minimum temperature of about 5°C, but will take a light frost and is hardy down to -5° C for short periods if it is in dry soil (Lethal temperature in habitat -6 to -10 ° Celsius). USDA zones 9A – 11. In areas prone to frost, grow in an intermediate greenhouse or conservatory, in pots.
