'Frosted Jade'

Its the first time in a few years that (knock wood) the cold hasn't affected it...no torn or brown edges/margins :D Still has a lot of filling out to do.

It is an amazing plant - yours looks fantastic!! :cool: Mine got set back by the cold so it's maybe 1/3 the size it was last year. :???:

Hi Barbara. I've had a frosted jade for several years. Mine looks limp :( but yours is so vigorous! Is it the horsey stuff you put around it?

I never knew why anyone liked this one so much until I saw a mature plant. Elegant describes it. Yours is lovely. (Mine is new and has 5 leaves :oops: Now I know why patience is a virtue :o
