Some leaves are pale ivory with green striations or green midstripes. Others are completely ivory, or have splashes of ivory. New leaves are frosty yellow, becoming ivory with age. Leaves are margined with pink in cold weather or bright light. Forms branching, thick elephantine trunk topped with a canopy of shiny leaves. The jade plant is a popular subject for bonsai training due to the inherent gnarly character of the thickened trunk and the ease with which it can be pruned and trained. An excellent plant for brightly lit areas in the house, patio and in more temperate climes can be planted in the garden or landscape. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost. Crassula obliqua commonly known as Crassula ovata variagata.
