Crassula streyi

Crassula streyi 
A tender South African species with 2in wide broad glossy leaves – dark green above, slightly marbled in silver, and intense wine red under. Like many plants with red leaf reverses, this is an adaptation to growing in shade, which makes this an excellent choice for a sunless windowsill and irregular watering – the ideal houseplant in many ways.

The flowers are small and off white and produced in branching sprays in spring
