Come cooler weather, Sedeveria ‘Letizia’ will knock yer sucks off, with its lime green leaves blushing an intense red. The original cross was believed to have been made by Fred Wass (a well-known hybridizer from England). Echeveria setosa v. ciliata was crossed with Sedum cuspidatum to create Sedeveria ‘Letizia’. ‘Letizia’ forms lime green rosettes. As highlighted, during cold weather, the leaves can transform into seemingly something else entirely. Flowers appear from multiple inflorescences and are sedum-like and white, sometimes blushing a pale pink. Letizia' is reputed to handle 21 degrees Fahrenheit if kept dry.
