The Crassula capitella campfire is a succulent that is native to certain regions in Southern Africa. It can be found in three of South Africa’s nine provinces, and is also seen in certain parts of Botswana and Namibia. It gets its name Crassula capitella campfire from its leaves that look almost like flames.
Their leaves start off a pale green in color, but turn red from prolonged sunlight. Their glorious hue of pinkish-red makes a magnificent show in flower beds, and in flower arrangements.
These plants are not terribly hardy and need to be looked after carefully in order to ensure their survival and growth. The Crassula capitella campfire has a long, thin, pointed leaf that is shaped a little like a propeller. They tend to grow on top of each other, in a rosette-like formation, with bigger leaves at the bottom and smaller leaves overlapping on top.
Their color is spectacular. They start off a very pale shade of green to lightish yellow, but as they spend more time in bright sunlight, they change color. They will gradually move through different shades, going from green or yellow to pale pink, brighter pink, and eventually will be bright red. They need to be kept in the sun for as long as possible in order to retain their brilliant color.
The plants are not very big and will grow to a maximum height of 6 inches. The stems will spread out, and they will cover a fairly large area of ground if left to grow untrimmed. They can often spread as wide as 3 feet.
When the stems lie on the ground, they can form new shoots at the internodes, which are the spaces between the nodes of the stem. These new shoots can take root and help the plant to spread further.
The Crassula capitella campfire is a biennial plant, which means that it takes two years to complete a flowering cycle. It will bloom through summer. The flowers are small and white, and are shaped like stars.
