Crassula perforata 'String of Buttons' is a fast growing succulent that forms nearly vertical branches stacked with pale green, triangular leaves. The offset pattern in which the leaves are stacked truly does resemble its namesake, and lends the plant a delicate appeal. In bright lighting, the margins of the leaves will take on a pink hue, adding a perfect pop of color. Reaching up to 18 inches tall and wide, the shrubby, slightly draping growth habit of ‘String of Buttons’ makes for a perfect ‘filler’ component in succulent arrangements, either indoors or within temperate rock gardens above Zone 9.
While 'String of Buttons' will put on the best growth and coloration in bright light, it can tolerate partial shade. This overall quite hardy variety is a great plant for beginner succulent growers, asking only for ample airflow, porous soil with adequate drainage, and thorough watering when the soil is completely dry. As an added bonus, this variety is extremely easy to propagate from stem cuttings, making for a great opportunity to add to your growing collection!
During the spring months, dainty pale yellow blooms will emerge from the tips of each stem, adding a layer of color to this already charming succulent.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
