Crassula dejecta

Neat, densely branched, upright perennial shrublet,  leaves are slightly fleshy, often tinged red, with a row of rounded, bead-like hairs on the margins that give the leaves a silvery edge but which one needs a magnifying lens to see properly. There are also small downward-pointing hairs on the young branches that give the stems a silvery dusting and which one also needs a magnifying lens to see properly. The leaves are opposite, more or less the same length on the whole plant, and arranged densely in neat rows up the stems, giving a tidy, geometric effect.
