    Parents: Graptopetalum paraguayense x G. amethystinum (?)

    Renamed Graptopetalum 'Marquise de Sévigné’ by Margrit Bischofberger & Jean-Michel Moullec of France to save confusion with Graptosedum 'Ghosty', a very different plant.

    There is a lot of confusion on the exact ID of this plant.
