Intergeneric hybrid Graptoveria ‘Opalina’ produces clusters of tight rosettes of thick, smooth, upright-held pale-blue-green leaves that blush a hint of pink on the leaf tips and margins when grown in bright light. In late spring come short-branching inflorescences bearing yellow flowers with orange centers. Plant in full sun in coastal climates to part sun in hotter inland areas. A hybrid of Graptopetalum amethystinum (lavender pebbles) and Echeveria colorata -- two pretty special parents. Put it in its own decorative container or share its juicy riches with a host of other succulents in a dish garden or landscape bed free of severe frosts.
