Anyone know what this is? It bloomed clusters of white star shaped flowers last year.

Thanks!

I'd guess a Sedum but not my area of expertise. It might be a different Crassula relative.

Looks to be a crassula. Amy or Rosemarie could nail this one down.

Hi WSG,

I know you're eager, but pls. be patient & give them more than 24 hrs. to respond (folks DO have other things to do besides visit here).

Our esteemed Crassula maven "Duffle" could likely also suggest what this is as well.

In the meantime, why don't YOU go to Desert-tropicals.com & browse around the varieties of Crassulas, starting in the area of C. marnieriana, rupestris or perforata. Those are some in the group I think of as 'stacked' Crassulas & should give you a decent place to start looking 'til other folks come around w/ addt'l suggestions.

I've been looking at it & coming back scratching my head. I would've said the same thing as Shrubs n bulbs...a Sedum or a Crassula. Star-shaped flowers might indicate Sedum, but were the petals sticking straight out like a star (more like SDedum), or curved back (more like Crassula)?

Thought of another question to help in ID...how large are the leaves?


 o
RE: Succulent ID please

I'd say Crassula also, based on the leaves and your description of the flowers. Star shaped white flowers scream "CRASSULA"!

I wasn't thinking straight...many Crassula have the star-shaped flowers with pointy petals--duh on me!

One possibility for you: Crassula pellucida (var. marginalis). Has your plant turned color at all during the year?

It does not turn colors. The mother plant is solid green however and you can see the baby I am growing in the greenhouse in the first picture in sun does have the redish margin on the leaves. The leaves are 1 1/2 inches long and 1 inch wide. Here is another picture of the mother plants stems. The stems that are quite old look like this, young stems are just green. I don't remember the flowers very well. It was before I had my digital camera and I do not have a picture of them either.
