Sedeveria ‘Letizia’ is an interspecific hybrid between two different genera in the Crassulaceae family: Sedum cuspidatum and Echeveria setosa var ciliata. It is an evergreen perennial succulent growing in mats.
Sedeveria ‘Letizia’ has stems some 8 inches (20 cm.) tall topped with small rosettes. Newer stems have leaves as well as rosettes but when the stems are mature, they are bare except for the rosette on top. Over cold, sunny winter days, the “petals” of this sedeveria turn deep red. They remain bright apple green, however, all summer long or all year, if grown in the shade. In spring, the Letizia sedeveria plant produces flowers on steps that rise above the rosettes. They are white with pink petal tips.
