Crassula columnaris is a little jewel amongst the South African desert plants.
This tiny, almost inconspicuous succulent seems to prefer stony patches, often on top of hillsides and hillocks.
The plants take several years to reach maturity and and die soon after flowering in winter leaving just the dried up plant body behind with the seed on top.
Cultivation is easy and a sandy well drained soil is preferred.
Growth is quite slow.
