Graptopetalum superbum is a succulent plant with thick, fleshy, pale gray-lavender to pink leaves that cluster in rosettes at the end of thick stems. The rosettes are open, flat, and up to 5 inches in diameter. Old plants have been noted with stems up to 7 feet long, but more typically, this plant remains fairly compact, especially when grown in full sun. In late winter to early spring, arise up to 2 feet tall, multi-branched inflorescences, holding small, star-shaped flowers with greenish-yellow petals with red markings on the tips. All require lots of sunlight to look their best. They require gritty, porous soil with excellent drainage. Common Name: Beautiful Graptopetalum. Mature plants can grow quite tall with stems that can be as long as 7 feet. The rosettes stay flat and compact, however. In late winter to early spring, it produces multiple branches of dainty star shaped flowers.
