Graptoveria 'Fred Ives Crested Form'

Original:Forma cristata: The cultivar  'Fred Ives' has given rise to a beautiful crested form with sunset colours & wonderful habit. It creates dense round mounds of tightly packed smaller leaves. Graptoveria ‘Fred Ives’ is a beautiful and durable succulent plant that produces large clumps of rosettes up to 8 inches (20 cm) tall and up to 1 foot (30 cm) wide. The succulent leaves are broad, waxy pearly-bronze to purplish yellow-orange to blue green (depending on time of year and growing conditons). Flowers are pale yellow with red-orange center and appear in summer on up to 2 feet (60 cm) long arching stems. 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. New:Graptoveria are hybrid crosses between Graptopetalum and Echeveria.

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

 

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.
