Crassula multicava, commonly known as the fairy crassula or in Afrikaans as the skaduplakkie (shade plaque), is a branching perennial reaching about 40 cm in height.
Multicava refers to the many little hollows on the disc-like, pitted, succulent leaves of the plant. And it is not shy to produce many small white flowers with pink on the outside and the flower stalks.
The species distribution is coastal in the east of the Eastern Cape and the south of KwaZulu-Natal.
The habitat is rock outcrops and cliffs in the shade of taller vegetation. Neither of the two subspecies, subsp. floribunda and subsp. multicava is considered threatened in habitat early in the twenty first century.
This is a rewarding garden plant, often the best candidate as groundcover in the shady spot where few other plants will grow. It roots easily from cuttings, grows fast, competes for its spot and lasts well in different conditions (Smith, et al, 2017; Pooley, 1998; iNaturalist; http://redlist.sanbi.org).
