It looks absolutely special, it's huuuuge isn't it?? The flowers look so very pretty, small fine stars and lots of them!! Thanks so much Varda!

It does resemble the jade plant in stem and leaf structure.

Plumpossum

I think the fancied resemblance of the leaves to cookies prompted someone to give it its name. The leaves are very fleshy; I think it is related to the jade plant (yes, the common house plant). It is a very obliging succulent - - can be easily kept to a manageable size, propagates very easily, and requires very little care. It is one of my favorite "lazy person's" plants. Oh yes - - and it has no thorns or other hostile parts!

But what is a cookie plant?

Plumpossum

Probably not. We do occasionally have light frosts here that don't seem to bother Cookie, but a hard freeze would be another matter. In my back yard is a clone of the tall cactus in another of my puzzles today; in 2003 it was cold enough to kill the edges of it, whence new growth comes, and it has stood there unchanged (but still green) ever since.

Cookie plant?
This doesn't look like it would like Connecticut, either!
