This little succulent needs a name.

I need a name for this plant please

I need a name for this plant please

It has thin brown branches and very soft green leaves. The stems start out as fragile light yellow-green and age into the slightly sturdier brown "trunks".
The leaves remind me of a golf club shape with a short handle.
It's a floppy plant. It doesn't support itself well. Not sure how else to describe it. Here's a picture or 2 of it.

Some kind of Sedum?
by: Jacki

I'm not sure what this is! It reminds me of some Sedum I've grown, like this one; Sedum oreganum.

The picture on that page shows it in full sun, which yours may not be. Full sun allows it to develop the gorgeous orangey tones, but in shade it stays green, like yours.

Does that give you somewhere to start?

Seems more like a jade?
by: JW

Hi Thanks for your reply. I've been told that it is more like a jade. I thought I was supposed to be able to add up to 4 photos of it, but I only got one through. the other photo would be helpful for people to see it's "branches" better.
Do you know how to add more photos? thanks jw

Not a Jade
by: Jacki

Jade Plant is Crassula ovata (or argentea) but this plant doesn't really look like it. You can tell if it's a Jade Plant by the little pores on the top of the leaves. If these aren't present, it's not a Jade.

So I'm not alone with this
by: JW

Glad to know someone else has expended some energy looking for a name for this plant. Guess I really should submit it to the horticulture extention at the UW.

JW, I'm sorry that you're getting too many notifications. You can stop that by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the note. I don't know if that will stop the duplications, maybe you signed up for them twice??

We'll see if I stop getting them altogether or if I'll still get one.
