Crassula arborescens ssp. arborescens

With stems up to 2 m tall and sometimes as much as 20 cm in diameter, this species really lives up to its name (arborescens = growing into a tree).
The plants occur mainly in the mountains between Worcester and Prince Albert and are
often abundant in clayey soil on rocky slopes and outcrops.
The flowers appear in spring and summer (Oct.-Dec.).
