‘Fred Ives’ – This is a beautiful and durable succulent plant that produces large clumps of rosettes to 8” tall by nearly 1’ wide with broad bronzy-pink succulent leaves on short stems. 1′-2′ long branched flower spikes bear star shaped, pale yellow flowers with red-orange centers in summer. Plant in full to part sun in a well-drained soil. Little irrigation is needed once established. This is a vigorous plant and is great as a container specimen or in the ground in well-drained soils or raised planters. It is reported to be a hybrid of Graptopetalum paraguayense crossed with a plant in the Echeveria gibbiflora group that was created by Albert Baynes. It is sometimes found labeled incorrectly as Graptoveria baynesii.
