I am a total tyro when it comes to succulents so bear with me. I was told this is a Crassula Pagoda - I can't seem to find any pictures that look quite like it . Can someone give me a definitive ID on this please?

Xera, your pic looks to be the end of the bloom stem which has stretched out the foliage just right below it. If you were to take a pic of the part of plant closer to the soil, the foliage might be more identifiable.

And here's Google link (which you may have already seen) to lots of crassula pagoda that aren't blooming and you can see the natural shape to the many vaieties of crassula pagoda.

Base of plant definitely looks like characteristic leaves stacking on top of one another like a pagoda type! Provide plenty of light to keep the compactness of the plant shape.

Hi Xeramtheum,

I have this succulent called Crassula capitella ssp. thyrsiflora 'Pagoda Village'
Thumb of 2013-06-17/tarev/5f1e67 Did your plant at one point look like this?

I saw other Crassulas with a Pagoda on their name, and same tighter cluster of leaves as mine.

One thing for sure, your plant is a Crassula..but I do not think it is a Pagoda. Shrug!

It was given to me a few days ago along with a lot of other succulents that I'm going to need a name for .. As I said, I'm totally new to this area of plants and if I'm going to get into them I'm wanting to know the Latin as I do with everything else I collect.

On the other hand .. can't wait for those little white buds to open.

That's a very lovely bloom! You know it somehow reminds me now of a Crassula capitella campfire Big Grin

Looks like this plant also, but these all look pretty much alike to me...
'Caput Minima'
Doing well (as determined by me by the presence of flowers) in a few hours of afternoon sun.

They do look alike .. I'm keeping mine in full sun all day .. except for the last few weeks - it's been raining so much I stuck them in the greenhouse. I've been wanting to plant all of my succulents in the bed I've made but hesitate because of all the rain.
