Hello

Mayur Nandikar has identified this as Crassula quatrifida. Below is an 
extract of the mail that he sent to me:


Unfortunately, a year before the tree where you have clicked the pictures

> It is a synonym of *Crassula **multiclava *and probably from South Cape. 
> How it has been introduced is unclear!. It is a beautiful plant.


Thank you Mayur ji for the ID.

Regards
Alka Khare
