Possibly a Graptopetalum paraguayense hybrid, Graptosedum ‘Alpenglow’ forms rosettes with beautiful pink-mauve leaves in rosettes that become somewhat bushy. The phrase “Alpenglow” refers to the reddish glow near sunrise and sunset in mountainous areas. Excellent as a ground cover or in rock gardens in temperate climates. The flowers are yellow. A go-to complement to echeverias and other succulents in dish gardens. Will hang over sides of containers or small walls.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
