Sku: 0850129

Don't know about you but we aren't afraid of ghosts, particularly those of the succulent variety. In fact, a succulent garden isn't a true succulent garden without at least one Graptopetalum parayguayense (ghost plant), ha ha. Rosettes become rambling to form semi-prostrate ground covers. Star-shaped white flowers with charming reddish speckling. Sometimes occurs as a variegated form or crested form. Quickly grows to fill up larger areas in rock gardens. Can be used for hanging baskets. Graptopetalum paraguayense is frost tolerant, but best to give protection to prevent damage.

Bloom time: Spring

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
