Embodying the mystique of its origins, Sinocrassula yunnanensis is a captivating succulent hailing from the rocky slopes of China's Yunnan province. This diminutive plant is a marvel of texture and color, featuring tightly packed rosettes of dark, almost black leaves that can sometimes show a deep green hue under certain light. The leaves are small, thick, and conical, with a slightly pointed tip, creating an almost otherworldly appearance that's both elegant and striking.

Despite its delicate look, Sinocrassula yunnanensis is a hardy plant, capable of reaching up to 4 inches in height. Its compact size and unique coloration make it a perfect choice for adding depth and contrast to succulent arrangements, rock gardens, or as a standout specimen in a miniature container garden. The plant's dense growth habit means it can fill in spaces nicely, creating a lush, textured look.

In the fall, if conditions are right, Sinocrassula yunnanensis surprises with an additional burst of beauty. Tiny, star-shaped flowers in a subtle shade of white or pale pink emerge, offering a delightful contrast to its dark foliage. These blooms add an unexpected element of softness to the plant's overall aesthetic.

Though it may seem as though this plant demands a lot of attention, it's quite the opposite. Sinocrassula yunnanensis is relatively low-maintenance, requiring minimal watering and thriving in well-draining soil. Its ability to adapt to less-than-ideal conditions makes it a great choice for both seasoned succulent collectors and those new to the hobby. This little succulent is a true gem, bringing a touch of the exotic to any space it occupies.


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!
