Crassula falcata, known by the common names airplane plant and propeller plant, is a succulent plant endemic to South Africa, from the Cape of Good Hope.  

The foliage is gray-green with striking texture, on plants that grow to 2 feet (0.61 m) tall. The flowers are tiny and scarlet red, that rise in dense clusters above the foliage for a month in summer.  
Crassula falcata is cultivated for use in drought tolerant and succulent gardens, and in container gardens.[1][2][3]

Will this be Crassula falcata or Crassula perfoliata subsp. falcata?


GRIN does not give any Crassula perfoliata subsp. falcata.
It only gives Crassula falcata J. C. Wendl., which is a syn. of Crassula perfoliata L. var. minor (Haw.) G. D. Rowley


Also pl. see efi page: Crassula perfoliata var. minor
