Crassula deltoidea (1)

One can encounter this species from southern Namibia to the Little Karoo. It is often locally abundant on gravelly flats and lower slopes. In spite of their lack of “rarity appeal”, it is always a joy to meet these plants in the field, because they are not only beautiful, but also show a great variation in size, shape  and colour.  The flowers may be white, cream or light pink and appear in October and November.
Unfortunately it is rather difficult to keep the plants neat and compact in cultivation.
