Trailing Jade (now Kleinia petraea) bears a strong resemblance to the Crassula Jades, but is in fact unrelated. This variety is native to the highlands of Tanzania and Kenya where it creeps along as a ground cover. In cultivation it also shines in a hanging pot, which allows its thick stems to form a dense cascade up to 4.0′ long. The smooth, spoon-shaped leaves of Trailing Jade stand upright on their stems. Moderate stress from bright sun or drought can induce vibrant flushing from lilac to magenta. This variety is an unreliable bloomer but when they do appear, its showy flowers are bright orange and shaped like a paintbrush, but few find their smell appealing.
