Crassula perfiolata var. falcata
by: Jacki

This is Crassula perfiolata var. falcata, otherwise known as Propeller Plant, Red Crassula, Airplane Plant, Scarlet Paintbrush and Keiserkroon.

You can see more about it on Dave's Garden Website with more pictures.

It sounds as though you have the perfect situation for it, in your Californian garden. The trick with it seems to be totally dry soil in the summer, and over watering it is the knell of doom.

Good luck with your gorgeous plant!
