ovate leaves, succulent with red rims. I have one that blooms red clustered flowers...but the one in the picture bloomed white...

Hi Alice - what a gorgeous plant! This looks to me to be a type of Crassula. You can see more on Dave's Garden Website.

See more about other kinds of Crassula here.

There are so many different ones, and you would swear they couldn't possibly be related, but there are a few characteristics that are common to most of these relatives of the Jade Plant - opposite leaves in pairs, and the way the leaf stem attaches to the main stem, and the construction of the flowers. No wonder they're so popular!

Happy Succulent Growing!
