It took me a while to find where you posted this, Noki:

Jade question... I bought a small Altman plant that was just labeled "Jade Plant Red"

What do you think is the proper name for this cultivar?
I had seen one at HD last week & wondered the same thing. I resisted getting it at the time, but the other day it pushed to be a cart-jumper. I'm curious if it is a new cultivar or some other just renamed. I have to say, I have not seen one colored up like this. It will be interesting to see if it holds its color throughout the year.
It is tagged Crassula argentea, Jade Plant 'Red' (as if that is the cultivar name, Red). Should be ovata, not argentea.

Did your plant look like this?

Other cart-jumpers...could not resist this HUGE Echeveria...I believe I saw elsewhere last month & JUST took a pic of it with my cell phone then...'Lotus' well as a variety of sux (a couple names I'm checking out) to keep it company on the ride home.

he he indeed😆

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

I love that "color". I've been looking for a jade. And I just feel in love with that red!!!! I'm hoping I can find it here!!

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

What a beautiful Jade! That red is amazing!

I also had a large Echevaria jump in my cart. $7 from Walmart with the clay pot.

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

Teisa, where is "here" (what part of country)? The company listed on the green pot & tag is Smart Planet (Drought Tolerant Plants). Do they distribute to any stores near you? I'm thinking it's a new cultivar (but don't know for certain).

Beautiful Echeveria, Laura! Nice find! Did they give it a name?

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

Great cart jumpers, ladies - for a chance to have a few of those!

Laura, if you bottom-water that Ech (and don't let inquisitive fingers touch it, of course), its leaves will retain the bloom longer and more heavily. Such a great looking plant, it would have been my choice, too. Love the NWC.

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

To, no ID on the Ech.

Thanks for the bottom watering info, Jeff. Learn something new every day!

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

Very nice!
That Jade is showing an unusually red leaf. If it is a new variety, even better - makes it fun to try and keep up with 'em ;-)


RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

Very nice color. I wonder how many new varieties you'd end up with if you just sowed a batch of C. ovata seed. I would guess there'd be quite a bit of variation if you could succeed in growing a good number of them... next project! I actually thought about it a few months ago when my daughter grabbed some flowers from a Jade and wound up with a handful of seed.

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

If you do, and come up with some new cultivars, be sure to let us know! =)

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

Nice cart jumpers!! I want to shop where you all do....

RE: Attn: Noki 'Red Jade' + Cart-jumpers!

I am wondering if my 'Rubra' jade is the same as this Red Jade...Here is a baby growing from a leaf...
