Description 

Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’ is a succulent plant with compact, Echeveria-like rosettes with a unique, orangish-pink color. It is long-cultivated and more widely-distributed than most of the hybrids .The rosettes are at the tips of eventually decumbent stems, which can simply be cut back and restarted to maintain a more compact plant. New growth is a grayish-green but soon takes on its distinctive coloration that is enhanced by drought as well as cool winter temperatures. The durability and grayish new leaves of this hybrid are imparted by Graptopetalum paraguayense. The pastel coloration and white flowers come from the other parent, Sedum adolphi.
