The Jade Plant is a succulent shrub that is native to South Africa and Mozambique. It is a very popular houseplant, in part because it is very easy to care for.
It looks like a miniature tree, and grows to a height of about 3 feet (1 metre).
The leaves are thick and shiny, with a wonderful jade green colour.
In the autumn, it produces lovely little star-shaped flowers, either pink or white in colour.
This is a charming plant that will liven up your living room and be a constant joy for many years to come.
