Golden Jade (Crassula ovata): A superstar grower whether kept indoors as a potted plant or grown outside as a dense, mounding shrub. Its glossy, ovate (egg-shaped) leaves sprout from thick, woody branches and turn golden yellow with red margins when grown in full sun. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" round, plastic pot.

The Jade species is native to South Africa and Mozambique where it grows en masse on rocky slopes, though it's now also ubiquitous in the Southern California landscape. Indoor growing, small pots, and pruning will keep Golden Jade in a small, bonsai size.

Jade is a forgiving grower and makes a great choice for beginners and low light rooms, though it can revert back to green when when unstressed by sun and heat. It has excellent resistance to pests, disease, deer, and neglect. Just give it a well-draining soil, protection from hard frost, and a deep watering when the soil is completely dry.

PLEASE NOTE: C. ovata can be mildly irritating to skin and cause nausea if ingested.
