Jade (Fine Leaved)


Portulacaria afra, Money Tree

Jade Succulent is an extremely common plant in Australian gardens and has been for some time. Not only is it easy to grow, you’ll find it’s hardy in most conditions, and really only struggles when over-watered. Preferring a loose draining soil, the Jade Succulent is one of the more resilient succulents when it comes to things like clayey soil. A very attractive addition to any garden!
