A South African native, Crassula rupestris 'Rosary Vine' is a petite, heavily branching succulent with stacked, triangular leaves that are a pale green in the center, with a slightly darker green along the margins. Reaching up to 12 inches tall and 3 feet wide, this variety makes a great addition to temperate rock gardens, as a ‘spiller’ in succulent arrangements, or as a stand-alone specimen!
Like all Crassula, 'Rosary Vine' is fairly easy to grow, as long as you meet a few key requirements. Porous soil, bright light, and good air circulation are a must, as is watering only when the soil has had a chance to become completely dry. Overwatering is the most likely cause of failure with ‘Rosary Vine,’ and it can be prone to pests such as mealy bugs – an infrequent but thorough watering routine, such as the ‘soak and dry’ method, should help shield against both. Hardy only to Zone 9, be sure to protect these chubby leaves from exposure to frost.
The reward for this care routine is clusters of deep to pale-pink blooms, which will emerge from the tips of the branches each year.

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!
