- Crassula pubescens subs. radicans, commonly known as the Red Carpet or Jade Carpet, is a charming and low-growing succulent plant valued for its spreading growth habit and attractive foliage.
- This succulent belongs to the Crassulaceae family and is native to South Africa.
- The name "Red Carpet" is derived from the plant's carpet-like growth pattern and its tendency to develop reddish or coppery tones, especially when exposed to bright sunlight.
- Crassula pubescens subs. radicans produces dense mats of small, tightly packed, and fleshy leaves that are typically green but can turn red or bronze under the right conditions.

- In the spring and summer, this succulent may produce delicate clusters of small, star-shaped, white to pale pink flowers.
- 'Red Carpet' is an ideal choice for ground cover, rock gardens, or container plantings, as it forms a low, spreading carpet-like mat.
