|Similar to Echeveria, this easy-to-grow succulent forms rosettes of plump, often blue-tinged leaves. Flowers are star-shaped. Plant in warm, dry areas of rock gardens, on slopes, in walls or in containers. Sun lovers, but they can tolerate shade or part-shade in hot climates. Graptopetalum amethystinum and Graptopetalum paraguayense are among the most attractive.
Thick, stiff leaves start out mauve, then turn blue-gray and form clumps. Flowers sometimes spotted red.
