Two varieties recognised, only C. sarmentosa var. sarmentosa present in Victoria (see profile under that name).

Crassula sarmentosa var. integrifolia Tolken does not appear to have been cultivated, and is apparently not recorded outside of South Africa. This variety is distinguished from C. sarmentosa var. sarmentosa by its leaves that remain elliptic with entire margins throughout the plant, and petioles that are more than 3 mm long (compared with 0–3 mm long in variety sarmentosa).
