Notes re Crassula rupestris: Mini Maxi and Jelly Bean

Recorded at Matjiesvlei, also at Gamkaberg Nature Reserve:

  1. A bigger a smaller version of classic C rupestris. They co-occur, although there could be a slight difference in preference when it comes to elevation. Both in image, first link above.
    2.Another plant is Crassula cf rupestris ‘Jelly Bean’. It also co-occurs with Mini and Maxi. It does not seem to fit into any of the three known subspecies of C. rupestris.

There was a bit of vindication for me when I discussed this with Louis Jordaan of Minwater. He has also noted Mini and Maxi and even had a photograph of a Jelly Bean on his tablet to show (GCBR Forum, Ladismith 26Feb2019).
