Graptoveria 'A Grim One'

Graptoveria are popular low growing ornamental garden plants. Although they are fairly drought tolerant, they will become more spectacular with regular deep watering and fertilising. The hybrids tend to be less tolerant of frost and shade. In temperate climates, most species will lose their lower leaves in winter and become 'leggy' and less attractive. Graptoveria are also popular pot plants and appear in most succulent collections. Graptoveria are hybrid crosses between Graptopetalum and Echeveria. Due to this mixed parentage they form a diverse genus, but most are low growing, cultivated for their beautiful shapes and colours. They produce stemless, clump-forming rosettes with thick leaves. Graptoveria need good drainage. Tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

They can be propagated easily by separating offsets, but also by leaf cuttings, and by seed if they are not hybrids. Succulents need a warm, sunny well-drained position to develop their foliage colour. Most succulents will be grown in containers and pots and they will need good drainage. Add coarse grit to soil-less compost and repot every year in late-spring. Don't worry about damaging the roots when re-potting: these plants tolerate disturbance well.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

Flowers on short stalks (cymes) arise from compact rosettes of succulent fleshy, often brightly coloured leaves. Species are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes
