Nice photos Rod. I have the last one named as Crassula capitella ssp. thyrsiflora 'Red Pagoda' (though I think the cultivar name is a derision of 'Pagoda Village' - link below).

It's the only Crassula I seem to do reliably well with!!!

Thanks Ed. I'm very limited these days due to shortage of space. Crassulas tend to grow large and I now only have one crassula species - cotyledonis.
