Fast growing, large, offsetting Graptoveria. An excellent beginner's plant. Rosettes are purplish pink and glaucous, reaching about 14 inches if given sufficient space, but usually less. A medium size cutting can fill a 3 gallon pot in less than a year. Over time this plant may become a low shrubby bush. Underpotting will severely impair growth. Flowers are yellow. Leaves are various shades of blue, lilac, and pink, changing with the seasons and exposure (green leaves indicate insufficient light). Graptopetalum paraguayense x Echeveria gibbiflora. Very easily propagated from cuttings in 8 inch pots. Will branch in profusion if beheaded. May develop bulbils on flower stalks. Susceptible to aphid attack at the growth center and mealy attacks on the stem below the rosette.

Relatively slow growing and very slow to sucker. Prefers some afternoon shade and likes water if in fast draining soil.

Will handle some frost. Water sparingly in winter.

Shrub forming cultivar.
