Graptopetalum amethystinum - Jewel Leaf Plant, Lavender Pebbles

Graptopetalum amethystinum is an eye catching succulent. The rounded white leaves have a rosy blush. The yellow flowers bloom in the Spring. The Jewel Leaf Plant will grow in full sun near the coast but would prefer some protection for inland gardens. Graptopetalum amethystinum is native to the mountains of Mexico. The Jewel Leaf Plant requires decent drainage. Plants will likely survive some frost, though not much if using their home range as an indicator.
