Crassula ovata 'Hummel's Sunset'
Common Name: Golden Jade Plant Family: Crassulaceae (The Crassula Family)

Crassula ovata 'Hummel's Sunset' (also known as 'Sunset') is a golden form of the jade plant with glowing lime green to gold foliage edged in bright red. Brighter colours are brought out by more sun, leaner soils, and a little drought stress. It can grow to 2-3 feet tall developing thick, brown, attractive trunks with time. It makes an easy and excellent container specimen in the garden in summer and house plant in winter. White flowers have a touch of lavender.
