Description  

Graptoveria ‘Fred Ives' (aka X Graptoveria ‘Fred Ives' in PlantFiles) is a hybrid between Graptopetalum paraguayense and Echeveria gibbiflora, a very commonly hybridized species of Echeveria. Though both parents are fairly common in cultivation, this plant seems to be even more common, showing up just about every nursery in southern California that sells succulents. It is not just easy to grow--it also looks good, and under a variety of circumstances.
