The name "Hobbit Succulent" may imply small size, but don't be fooled: this colorful jade plant can grow up to 24 inches tall. When it reaches its maximum height, the Hobbit Succulent is certainly a sight to see. It boasts tubular green stems with ending in open, curled orange to scarlet red tips that resemble suction cups, a growth pattern that is unique and eye-catching. This colorful succulent thrives in container gardens, which means it can be planted almost anywhere where there's space for one. It thrives in partial shade to full sunlight, though most prefer the latter, and full sun will accentuate the plant's signature red tips. As for watering, it's best to let the Hobbit Succulent's soil dry out entirely before you give it another drink. Although it's technically best suited for planting in zones nine and ten, those in zones two through eight can still easily grow a Hobbit Succulent. Just be sure to bring it indoors before the first frost, as Hobbits like to stay warm and cozy.

The Hobbit succulent's eye-catching evergreen leaves retain their colors all year long, while its star-like flowers - which bloom in a soft shade of pinkish white - appear in late fall to early winter. You may have to prune your plant at this time, but that requires only that you pinch it back to prevent your succulent from appearing leggy. A popular addition to gardens everywhere, these succulents are easy to care for and quite interesting to look at. Spectacular rock garden succulents, the Hobbit variety can be transplanted and moved indoors with ease. Whether adorning a stone wall, adding interest to arid rocky ground or livening up a patio, the Hobbit succulent is a precious addition to your garden.
