Jades of September....
This season the Jades are setting earlier than ever before, and I am quite pleased. The weather has been wonderful this September, with periods of rain and Autumn warmth. After a blazing Summer, the color of the Crassula is finally improving. Two Jades are setting buds...but this first pot of cuttings from a GardenWeb friend is blooming for the first time!
This Jade was sent to me in March of 2010 by another GardenWeb member, John from Oregon, and it has bloomed reliably the past four seasons...I sent a piece to Meyer Mike, and I wonder if his is blooming yet. I sure hope so!
Although my Sunset Jade isn't blooming, what Jade Thread would be complete without a shot of the 'Hummel's Sunset'? Next season, I must trim this one down to get it into a bushy habit...maybe a solo potting, as well.
Oh, and an update on the 'Gollum' and the Crassula ovata obliqua that I pruned earlier this season. First the 'Gollum' - my favorite 'Gollum' bonsai.
And the oblique leaf Jade...so much easier to manage in this state of trim. It will sit happily near to the window, receiving good light this Winter. A successful whack :-)
