Just wondered as I don't think I've ever seen a pic posted of anyones in flower, they all seem to be pics of the regular Crassulas.

Meyer Mike had some 'Hobbit' cuttings blooming this Winter, I believe.
I've seen 'Hummel's Sunset' in bloom, as well. I think they all flower, it's just
that there are so many more standard Crassula ovatas that they account for the lion's
share of what we see.

Mike gave me a cutting of a Hobbit months ago that had flowers still on it. But as we know, Mike is not a mere mortal, so don't know how easy it is for the rest of us to get them to bloom!

Oooops! Looks like the title overrun and I hadn't noticed, good job you 2 guys knew what I was on about so thanks for the replies!!
Obviously they MUST flower, as all plants do, but I had never seen anyones in flower so guessed they must be rather difficult.
So Mike is the guru of all Hobbits/Gollums/Hummels and Crosbys then, why am I not surprised by that!!
Cheers, Gill from the UK.
