Crassula fragarioides has just been officially described in 2011 by Van Jaarsveld and Helme.
Therefore this new species is still very rarely offered.

It is native in South-Africa, just as most Crassulas, particularly in the North Cape, Bokkeveld Escarpment, South of Nieuwoudtville.
There are several forms known. The fine form with long, narrow leaves is shown on the picture above. This one has location number CR1660a (Boskloof).
A more robust form has location number CR1873 (Bloemfontein), see the picture at the very bottom of this page.

In Summer the leaves turn dark red/purple and because of the white-grey dots they look like, with some fantasy, strawberries (Latin name: Fragaria)
The inflorescenses of the CR1660a form, which develop during winter, are globular and exist out of small bright white flowers.
