Variegated jade plants need full sun to develop their full coloration. Water sparingly or abundantly. Reduce water in the winter
Crassula ovata cv. Lemon & Lime (Variegated Jade Plant) is a spectacular slow growing cultivar close in appearance to the common jade plant but with shiny cream stripes on spoon-shaped leaves. Just as its all green cousin it is a many-branching succulent shrub with a stout trunk up to 120-180 cm tall. It bears pale-green, obovate pointed leaves that are streaked with a white variegation. Leaves are often tipped with a pink margin on the new growth and when grown in the sun. Like most variegated plants, it is a slow grower.
Given proper conditions, the Crassula will flower with small pink or white, star-shaped in apical clusters 5 to 7 cm across within the foliage in the late winter, making an attractive and mildly fragrant display.
