Crassula multicava is a hardy, evergreen, mat-forming, broad-leaved succulent plant.
It bears many sprays of dainty, star-shaped, pink flowers from May to November that attract a whole host of tiny insects. It is also a butterfly host plant. Used in traditional medicine. Brood buds are produced from the inflorescence, making it a rapidly spreading plant.
It makes a lovely container plant and is gorgeous mass-planted in those difficult dry areas under trees.
This popular, easy-to-grow plant is suitable for damp or dry spots in light to deep shade.
Size: up to 30cm
