Graptopetalum amethystinum

This is Graptopetalum amethystinum, a plump lavender beauty. I find these to be simply amazing in form and in their ease of growth. As always, however, don't let the potting mix remain wet too long and allow the mix to mostly dry out between waterings.
Our snow lasted all of about 12 hours, then turned to rain and more rain. Forecast calls for rain for at least the next 7 days. Time to get out the wading boots!


  1. Hola Lutero espero que estés muy bien, la planta es muy bonita, sus hojas parecen caramelos, un abrazo.

  2. These are beautiful! I also love their purple plumpness!

  3. Thanks Marisol and Mandy. This is one of those plants which just 'stands out' in a crowd.
