No fragrance. I have another jade that is a different variety. It's just starting to bloom. I will give it the sniff test and let you know.

The one pictured is a surviving piece of one that started as a 4 inch piece off a friend's plant. It got very big and was beautiful 20 some years later, then it froze when the furnace in the greenhouse didn't work. I lost a lot of plants, including the big jade. About 3 months later I was dumping soil out of pots of things that had frozen and there was a little green shoot coming up from the roots! Some tlc plus about 10 years and you see the result. My other jade variety was picked up off the ground in San Diego. They grow outside there and just about every flower bed had one. Big plants. That was almost 9 years ago and it is a nice plant now and just about to bloom for the first time. Jade plants require time and patience. My old one was about 15 years old when we got the greenhouse. The extra light inspired it. I do have it behind a curtain because the light is too bright in there.

I planted some pots with beet and lettuce seeds today.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
