This Crassula nudicaulis var. platyphylla plant has grey-green, obovate leaves, square-tipped in a basal rosette. The stem is slightly elongated between the leaves at its advanced stage.
The plant was found flowering in the Biedouw Valley during September. Interesting that none of the plants seen in this area had clumped, only produced long stalks from single leaf rosettes.
In a similar species like C. tomentosa the leaves would have been erect, more rounded with ciliate margins, arranged like the pages of a book. C. cotyledon is somewhat similar in habit too, but it branches and the lower stems woody.
This inflorescence is robust, consisting of about ten flower clusters upon the unbranched stem, down to near the leaf rosette. The flowering nodes are about evenly spaced. The lower clusters consist of more flowers, their sepals green.
The corollas are cream, their mouths small, showing some brown inside. The anthers possibly old (Smith, et al, 2017; Frandsen, 2017; Manning and Goldblatt, 1997; iNaturalist).
