Crassulas are often small, curiously formed plants that are favourites for succulent collectors. Crassula multicava is one of those plants that can be used for almost all purposes and this is without a doubt why it has become such an important garden plant throughout South Africa as well as in other countries. There are not many shade-loving succulents that create as beautiful a display as C. multicava. The uniformity, compactness and neat low-growing appearance of this plant is much enjoyed by the gardener and landscaper alike. The plants are also very long-lived and respond well to pruning when overgrown.
