Crassula perfoliata var. minor (AKA Crassula falcata)

Another crassula. Another plant which was among the first we ever grew. Can grow quite tall (2 feet or more!) and has a bright red inflorescence in mid-summer. And we still call it Crassula falcata, no matter what the taxonomists say...
Certainly not rare, so the collectors of rare can turn up their noses. But somehow or another, through all our attempts to reduce the number of plants we have, this one is still hanging around...actually more than one. Must be something even more important than rarity!
