The Crassula Tetragona ‘Miniature Pine Trees’ is easy to care for. It is also known as the Chinese Pine and is a unique succulent. Needle-like leaves and its shrubby appearance of Crassula tetragona (KRASS-yoo-luh tet-ra-GO-nuh) has led to the nickname Miniature Pine Trees. To clarify, this is not a type of pine and indeed a succulent plant. This South African native stands straight and adds great texture and height to any succulent arrangement.
