Crassula Ovata (Hummels Sunset)

Crassula Hummels-Sunset

Not unlike other Crassula Ovata varieties, Hummels Sunset grows in a tree like formation. It is a winter active succulent that really shines when in direct sunlight for at least 4 – 6 hours per day. Comparing it to a standard ‘Ovata’ it is easy to see the colour variation, Hummels Sunset develops bright red and golden markings along the margins of the leaves, especially visible in winter and even more so mid-spring.

Flowering in winter, Hummels Sunset produces delicate white flowers with a hint of lavender. Avoid over-watering in the winter months as with all Ovata’s as this can lead to rot.
