|Any help is appreciated on this species cross between a graptopetalum and sedum. |
We do have an entry in the database for Crassula pubescens 'Vera Higgins'. I find no reference for that plant under the name Vera Higgins. Crassula pubescens is also covered in fine cilia, graptosedum is not.

|Is this one that we should enter it as Graptopetalum x 'Vera Higgins'? I did try that, but it won't let me make a new entry in the database under that name.|

|Hi Lynn, I'm seeing all kinds of names out "there" but the RHS DB does list this one as × Graptosedum 'Vera Higgins': http://apps.rhs.org.uk/horticu...|
There are 4 x Graptosedum listed, 'Vera Higgins' being the only one they list as accepted. Search "Graptosedum".

|I tried entering it that way in our ATP database, but get this message: It appears that this genus is not valid. If you are certain that it is a valid genus, please post a message to the Plants Admins requesting that it be added. In the message, please let them know all the fields you entered.|

|So do you want a new plant entry × Graptosedum 'Vera Higgins' or do you want Crassula pubescens 'Vera Higgins' changed?|

|Let's change the existing entry, Crassula pubescens 'Vera Higgins', since it isn't a correct name anyway. |
Do we change it to Graptosedum 'Vera Higgins'?

It's done. XGraptosedum 'Vera Higgins'
I found this on the ICN http://crassulaceae.net/xgrapt...
Do a Ctrl + F for Vera Higgins.

|Today at a Home Depot, in the houseplant section, I bought a Graptosedum Alpenglow "Vera Higgins" The grower is : Altman Plants in Vista, CA 92084. It says it has a reddish glow, hence the name Alpenglow. Vera Higgins was a person 1892 - 1968, who was instrumental in the early Rock Garden Societies, and authored a book, published in 1964. At least that's what my goggle search told me :)|
