Gardeners' Notes:

I had a hard time identifying this plant, mostly because the first few photos on this page made the plant look so much different than it does in my yard, or anywhere here in outdoors southern California. Then I realized that that was the problem. Lots of plants look different outdoors than they do indoors, sometimes so different that it is hard to believe they are the same plants. Outdoors this is a short, triangular-leaved plant often with reddish to maroon leaves, while in indoor or more protected situations, this plant has longer, thinner and more pale turquoise leaves. The two hardly look alike at all.

Parentage believed to be Graptopetalum paraguayensis and Sedum stahlii. As older leaves fall off, the stem is soon covered with new growth.
