This succulent is well adapted to the Coachella Valley. It’s an excellent container plant with an interesting, flowing growth habit that appears to flow waterfall-like over the edge of a container or across the ground. It is often confused with the jade plant, Crassula argentea. Elephant’s Food grows more rapidly and has more open growth, with limber, tapering branches. The stems are brownish, covered with half inch, glossy green, succulent leaves. It thrives best with afternoon shade, but too much shade can cause plants to become straggly. It can suffer damage when exposed to intense direct sun. The canopy coverage is approximately 13 square feet.
