"Just" Crassula rupestris, but still a nice show of flowers:

I spotted this in the greenhouse this morning. The label is Crassula luederitzii, which is considered to be C. capitella ssp. thyrsiflora. The photo of luederitzii in Gordon Rowley's book appears to be a Conophytum. I'm pretty sure this one is a Crassula not a Cono.

That's a very different flower to my capitella thyrsiflora 'Red Temple'. Mine has small flowers along the stem.

Some more nice flowers today, thanks Ralph and Mike. It really helps to see some cheerful flowers in these rather dull days.

It does look a bit like one of the C. exilis subsp.

Thought I had a picture of it in flower but apparently not.

This is it a few days ago.

I probably should water my C. capitella subsp. thyrsiflora 'Pagoda Village' (I think) a tad more (or give it a sunscreen?):

Another one I missed, Crassula Nudicalis

The other one I’ve seen with lots of different names so I’m not going to try and name it. One of them I’ve seen is as variegated ovata which shouldn’t be correct should it? The leaf shape is different to a standard ovata
