Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’ is a hybrid of Graptopetalum paraguayensis “Ghost Plant” and Sedum adolphii. It is a popular succulent among collectors. The reddish leaves add great contrast to your succulent arrangements or rock garden. Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’  is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun. Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem. This will give you a better chance of successful propagation. Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.
