A hybrid developed by famed horticulturalist Myron Kimnach, Crassula 'Baby's Necklace' is a very hardy succulent with small, fleshy leaves tightly stacked around thin stems and usually multicolored in shades of green, red, and burgundy. Together with the plant’s growth habit, which may begin to drape as the stems reach their full length, it very clearly resembles a string of beads, just like its name suggests! Reaching only six to twelve inches in height, this petite plant is further accented in the early summer months with tiny white flowers, growing in small clusters atop each stem.
Hybridized from South African cultivars, 'Baby's Necklace' is a very drought tolerant succulent, but can burn in the scorching sun – so be sure to protect it from harsh sunlight by providing bright, filtered light instead. Plant this succulent in porous soil with adequate drainage, and water thoroughly only when the soil is completely dry. To prevent rot, don't let this succulent sit in wet soil, especially during the winter months when less frequent watering is necessary.
Hardy down to Zone 9, these plants must be protected from anything more than a very light, very brief frost – making ‘Baby’s Necklace’ best suited to growing in containers that can be moved indoors during the colder months.

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!
