You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Baby Jade ‘Hobbit’ (Crassula ovata)
Baby Jade ‘Hobbit’ has unusual tubular leaves with red edges and star-shaped pink flowers that emerge in fall. This upright,
compact succulent will develop a thick trunk with age. It’s a slow grower and will take years to reach its full height of 12-16” tall. Drought and heat tolerant, ‘Hobbit’ is a low
maintenance plant and makes an unusual specimen for containers. Remember, succulents need the soil to dry out between waterings.
Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors.
Partial sun to shade, grows 1-2' in container, minimum indoor temperature 60°, intermittent bloomer.
GREAT HOUSE PLANT TO GROW!plant survives fine in late fall/winter months in my zone 5.water late when dry.

a good pick
I bought this beeing a fan of jade and not have ever had a hobbit jade. I received a beautiful plant that was expertly packaged with no signs of distress from shipping. Keep in mind that the jade pictured is more mature than the one you will get. I highly recommend.
