Crassula expansa subs fragilis is a hardy, evergreen, spreading succulent. It is delicate-looking but a vigorous ornamental groundcover with small oval leaves and stems of either green or purple. Crassula expansa subs fragilis bears masses of tiny, star-like, white flowers from November to April. These flowers attract a large variety of small, non-honey-bee pollinating insects. Crassula expansa subs fragilis is suitable for containers and for planting between stepping-stones or cascading over rocks in rockeries. It makes a great hanging basket subject for shaded areas. Crassula expansa subs fragilis is also suitable as an indoor office plant. Thrives in those difficult, dry, dark, shade areas under trees, where other plants struggle to grow. It grows well in either semi-shade or shade in well-drained soil.
A minimum spacing of 0.15m when planting is recommended best results.
