Crassula Tom Thumb is a cute miniature succulent that grow trailing branches, making them a great addition for hanging planters. It has tiny densely packed triangular leaves that can develop red edges with enough sun exposure. It’s not frost tolerant and needs protection in the winter to avoid scarring. In spring, it produces tiny white flowers as cute as the mother plant. All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
