Crassula marginalis rubra 'Calico Kitten'

Size

Crassula marginalis rubra 'Calico Kitten' is a dainty succulent with adorable heart-shaped leaves in variegated shades of rose, hot pink, cream, and green. This trailing succulent looks equally at home spilling over rocks, paired with other succulents in containers, or as a ground cover. It responds well to pruning, and can be maintained as a more mat-like succulent should you prefer a more compact look – when left to its own devices, it will grow about 3 inches tall, with draping stems up to 12 inches long.

'Calico Kitten' needs at least filtered sunlight, though brighter light will deepen the pink coloration of its leaves. Thoroughly water this plant only when the soil is completely dry, and pot in porous soil with adequate drainage. Ample airflow will help to avoid pests, such as mealy bugs, which may otherwise seek a home beneath the plant’s many leaves. Be sure to protect this delicate beauty from frost, as ‘Calico Kitten’ is hardy only to a Zone 9.

When provided with the right growing conditions, this succulent will bloom in the spring, showing off small white flower clusters.
