Crassula capitella 'Campfire'

 

Crassula capitella 'Campfire', native to Africa, forms branching stems with light green leaves that morph through shades of yellow and orange, progressing to a bright red at the tips. The overall effect makes the plant look back lit as if it were a pile of glowing embers in a slow burning campfire. Leaves color up best in bright light, drought or cold temperatures. Offsets quickly to form wide mats. Excellent color accent in rock gardens or as a groundcover. Crassulas require very porous soil with excellent drainage. In habitat, usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring. Vibrant Deep orange and rust colors. They are winter growers and intolerant of frost. Offer light water in summer. If outdoors, fall through winter, water once a month or allow the rain to water your plants. Propogate by stem cuttings. Cutting tops make new plants and parent plants fuller.
