Pink intergeneric hybrid (may be bluish in low light) which grows to about 8 inches wide and offsets regularly. Well behaved in cultivation. Best color with strong light. Flowers are shades of pink and appear in profusion during spring. The leaves are tasty to birds and rodents during times of drought.

This garden hybrid of Graptopetalum amethystinum and an unknown Echeveria was published by Glass and Foster in 1978, and released as ISI 1087. It is named for Debbi Foster, daughter of Bob Foster. The alternate spelling "Debbie" is incorrect. This cultivar is easily confused with "Spirit of '76", an intergeneric Charles Uhl hybrid of Echeveria shaviana.
