Description (Compton's Flora of Swaziland*):
Crassula alba - With a general similarity to C. vaginata, it has very numerous long-pointed often spotted leaves in compact basal rosettes, suggesting a Hawor­thia. Sepals papery. Petals white or greenish. Has been placed in the var. parvisepala, but possibly deserves specific rank.

* Where species names have changed, these have been matched according to herbarium specimens quoted in this publication.
