Graptopetalum superbum (Beautiful Graptopetalum) - This succulent gem forms 5 inch wide flat open rosettes with fleshy, thick pale gray-lavender to pink colored leaves that cluster in rosettes at the end of thick stems. Old plants have been noted with stems as long as 7 feet but more typically this plant remains fairly compact, especially when grown in full sun. In late winter to early spring arise the 1 to 2 foot tall, open multiple-branched inflorescences holding dainty flowers with pale yellow petals with red markings on the tips, and with red sigma lobes and stamens, which like G. pentandrum number 5 while most other species of Graptopetalum have 10 stamens. Plant in full sun to light shade. Water occasionally to frequently. Hardy to 25 F or less. This easy to grow and prolific plant makes a good landscape plant or container specimen or even a hanging plant when stems elongate.
