Day 11: jade necklace vine

Daily details from the garden to bring you inspiration throughout the year


Some plants are simply fascinating with their sheer originality of colour and form, and building a collection of house plants allows you to get up close and personal with some truly different specimens. One of my particular favourites is the jade necklace vine, Crassula rupestris subsp. marnieriana, a small succulent with snaking stems of spade-shaped, fleshy blue-green leaves edged in red. It’s low maintenance too (water sparingly), and propagates easily from leaf or stem cuttings.
