The Crassula genus encompasses a diverse group of succulents, with over 200 known varieties. These resilient plants primarily originate from South Africa and neighboring regions, thriving in arid climates. Characterized by fleshy leaves and compact growth habits, Crassula succulents often exhibit unique geometric arrangements, forming rosettes or stacked patterns.

The genus includes popular species such as the Jade Plant (Crassula ovata), known for its thick, oval-shaped leaves and tree-like growth. Crassulas come in various sizes, from petite ground covers to larger shrub-like forms and are popular for both indoor and outdoor gardens.
