This beauty has done really well in my garden this winter in temps down to 20 degrees in a relatively exposed location.

THis is a very commonly sold plant at garden outlet centers and nurseries here in Southern California. It is distinguished by its fat, smooth, pale blue-green leaves with a hint of pink in them. It performs quite well as a garden plant here in southern California, though hot, full sun usually will burn the leaves a bit. But in too much shade it gets leggy and weak. Flowers in spring highlyt branched, yellow ones.

First photo above looks like a different Graptoveria type- leaves are too thin and long.
