Jade Plant

This jade plant is a must for your collection of succulents. It has petite, star-shaped white or pink flowers that start as buds covered with pink sepals before they open. The flowers of the jade plant are highlighted by the contrast of the thick, green and glossy succulent leaf pads.

A pink jade plant thrives in bright indirect light to full sun but is not suited for low-light areas in the home. For darker rooms, invest in low-light houseplants.
