Crassula peploides is a low-growing, hardy succulent that spreads to form a mat. The height achieved is only about 7 cm. The plant bears attractive white and pink flowers.
The genus Crassula is large, well represented in southern Africa. Many of the species are easy to grow from cuttings or seed, allowing the crassulas to count among the most common garden succulents. The plant is favoured by gardeners in many countries who find ways of growing them in diverse conditions.
