Janet what is a Graptosedum? A cross between a Graptopetalum and Sedum?
This one is going to give someone a headache. I agree with you according to flower structure but no X Graptosedum 'Francesco Baldi' in the database only "Vera Higgins". Going into Vera Higgins, as to who its going to give a headache to Shrug! .
Tried an experiment but "It appears that this genus is not valid". Genus I put in as 'X Graptosedum'.

Graptosedum is a cross between Graptopetalum and various sedum. https://www.google.com/search?q=graptosedum&hl=en&rlz=1C1ASA...
There are some very beautiful crosses.

Lynn has explained it Arif. And, note if you see one which has flowers like yours on the link which Lynn has given, it always turns out to be 'Francesco Baldi' !

New plants can be added to the database, if you think that is what you have. I can't say for certain but the likelihood is high.

Thank you Lynn, Janet and Moonhowl. Janet there was only Vera Higgins in there tried to add the other Shrug! . Anyway uploaded and requested zuzu to create and shift which she very kindly did.
I thought it sounded like a cross because I was no able to find a description of what Graptosedum is. Lynn I have got a few more, let them bloom first. One looks like a cabbage family Hilarious! . Soft mushy which can be used to tickle a baby.
Regards,
Arif.

You are most welcome, Arif. Thank you Lynn. I must be an "old dog" as I seem to have no luck adding plants/pictures. I have tried a few times and not sure where I am going wrong...but obviously I am...

Arif, you can add a new plant to the database yourself, there's a link to do that ..

http://garden.org/plants/

The moderator will add it once you have put in the details, when created you can then add your photos. Be careful you have the details correct though, if not sure you can ask in the Plant Database forum.

It's good to be able to add more entries. Thumbs up
