Rose or pink rosette succulent with extra chunky, glaucous leaves. Rosettes reach about 4-6 inches wide and stems may grow to a foot or more in advanced age. Flowers are whitish yellow with red highlights. This plant can be easily propagated from leaves.

From Durango, Jalisco and Sinaloa, Mexico. This species is a parent of the popular xGraptoveria "Opalina" and "Debbi" (as well as several other attractive hybrids).
