Crassula 'Flame' or 'Campfire'
« on: August 31, 2017, 12:56:50 PM »
Mike, in a post above you mention Sedum 'Campfire'. I have a plant that I've always thought of as Crassula 'Flame' although others call it 'Campfire'. I've never really been able to pin it down as I've seen it in various publications as Crassula capitella 'Flame/Campfire', C. erosula 'Flame/Campfire' and C. coccinea 'Flame/Campfire'. Whatever it is it doesn't seem to deal with the heat well, despite its name! Is it anything like your sedum?

That's the one, John.
My mistake / sloppy brain.
I'd take a photo of mine, but it would be unfair on the cultivar for me to depict it in such a woesome state!
