Lizard Tails Review by Lori Janeiro - Crescent City, CA
Posted on 2013-03-24 21:41:19

I have been growing this for a few years. This is a wondeful ground cover and add to potted plants or as a filler to cactus garden. This is great as it grows the birds grab at it and drop it through your yard, it needs no fuss and roots alone. I wouldnt have a cactus garden without it....

Indigenous to South Africa, the Lizard's Tail succulent is a popular houseplant worldwide. Although its botanical name is Crassula muscosa, it also goes by many common names, including Rattail Crassula, Watch Chain, Zipper Plant and Princess Pine. A compact plant with triangular leaves that show hints of purple on the uniquely textured green foliage, this perennial succulent has a wonderful spreading habit. These succulent plants flower during the spring, fall and winter, producing tiny greenish-white to yellow flowers. One of the many easy to care for succulent plants that we offer, the Lizard's Tail succulent's unique look is a great addition to borders, rock gardens, containers or arid bare patches. These plants thrive through drought during the hottest of summer months. These plants are hardy outdoors year-round in zones 9 - 10, and are frost resistant down to 25 degrees F. In colder climates, you may wish to move them indoors for the winter. It is best to place container-grown Lizard's Tail succulents in small pots from the start, repotting to a larger vessel when necessary. They grow at a moderate pace and their soil should be dried out between watering. This perennial succulent has a consistent spreading habit, being able to branch out on their own with little maintenance needed. Add this fun perennial succulent to your patio or garden to appreciate its tantilizing texture and cool colors all year long.
