Recently a person I was talking to referred to these as "just another Jade". Not long after that someone else told me that the Jade was his favorite succulent plant.
It's true, almost everyone has grown a Jade or at least seen many of them, sometimes pretty "ratty" ones. Occasionally someone tells me that they can't keep one alive when killing one is really pretty difficult; they either over watered it or let it get too cold.
Where we are, Jades are a house plant and can't be used in landscaping. But nicely grown, the humble Jade plant can be an excellent and easy succulent accent plant.
