  1. Hi Karimi

    Thanks for visiting Plantbook.

    Consider planting a plant with contrasting leaves around your Crassula border. This will detract the eye from them when not at their prettiest. Options could include:
    Chlorophytum comosum ‘Varigatum’(Variegated Hen-and-chicken)
    Asparagus sp. (Asparagus fern)
    Plectranthus aliciae (Variegated Plectranthus)

    Flourish!

  2. Hi there,

    I have the crassula growing as edging in my flower bed however it’s creating a dull effect during the months when it is not flowering. Is there another type of ground cover I could plant in between that would complement and pair well with it?
