Graptosedum california sunset care

Scientific Name

x Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’

Synonyms

x Graptosedum ‘Peachblossom’

Scientific Classification

Family: Crassulaceae
Genus: x Graptosedum

Description

x Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’ is a succulent plant with compact, Echeveria-like rosettes with a unique, orangish-pink color. 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.

Hardiness

USDA hardiness zones 10a to 11b: from 30 °F (−1.1 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).

How to Grow and Care

The rules for Graptopetalums care are similar to those for most succulents. All require lots of sun to look their best. They require gritty, porous soil with excellent drainage. Water regularly over the summer months, letting the soil dry out between waterings. Minimal water is required over winter. Overwatering is a cause of root rots and the plant can get several pest infestations. Fertilize once during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer diluted to 1/4 strength.

Graptopetalums are generally easy to propagate, by seeds, leaf cuttings or offsets. Any rosette that breaks off has the potential to root and start a new plant. Even a leaf that drops off will root below the parent plant and produce a new rosette quickly. The new plant feeds off the leaf until it shrivels up and falls off. By then the new little plant has rooted and sprouted new leaves.

Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’

Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’ (Graptopetalum paraguayense × Sedum adolphii) (Grim): A stemmed rosette with a pastel green center and peachy pink leaf tips. Its pink coloration is its most vibrant under slight stress from bright sunlight, infrequent watering, or cool temperatures around 50F. Look for white, star-shaped blossoms in the spring.

‘California Sunset’ is a fast, easy grower. It is not frost tolerant, so most growers will keep it potted on a sunny window sill when there is a chance of frost. They need ample sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

Over time, dense clusters of long stemmed rosettes will form. Let them grow out for a trailing look or prune them back to keep the plant compact. ‘California Sunset’ roots easily from stem cuttings (more info).

You’ve seen these succulents everywhere. Their captivating rosettes have been a constant in garden stores for years. Graptosedum is a classic that’s fun and easy to grow.

Yes, the name sounds like grapes, but this succulent actually resembles Echeveria. Graptosedum’s compact leaves spiral around the stem and create rosettes at the top. It comes in a wide array of hues from purple to orange to white. This succulent is sure to add color to your garden.

All About Graptosedum

Graptosedums are sprawling plants. Because of this, they’re great as groundcovers or in hanging baskets. You’ll see the most growth during spring and fall. In the spring, you may be rewarded with white flowers – a sign that your Graptosedum is healthy.

Because sunlight is so essential for this plant, you’ll get the best results growing outside. Zones 9-11 can sustain Graptosedum yearlong. In other areas, plant your succulent in a container that can be brought indoors when it’s cold out. Avoid leaving your Graptosedum in temperatures below 30° F.

Graptosedum is a hybrid of two genera: Graptopetalum and Sedum. You may see it written as xGraptosedum. Although this genus has many varieties, the care is universal.

Types of Graptosedum

There are numerous varieties of Graptosedum. They’re often confused with each other, so let’s pick apart the most common ones.

Graptosedum ‘Vera Higgins’, ‘Alpenglow’

This variety is well-known for its deep burgundy color. The color comes from exposure to cool temperatures, so the succulent is green at first. Although the burgundy is beautiful, don’t be tempted to lower the temperature too much. ‘Alpenglow’ is only cold hardy to about 25° F.

Graptosedum ‘Bronze’, ‘Coffee’

‘Bronze’ is often grouped with the ‘Vera Higgins’ variety. The only major difference is in color. ‘Alpenglow’ is burgundy while ‘Bronze’ is, you guessed it, bronze. This variety can handle a minimum temperature of 15° F. Because of this, it can often survive outdoors in zone 8b.

Unlike other varieties, the leaves of ‘Bronze’ grow abundantly below the rosettes. The cylindrical shape this makes gives the succulent a fuller appearance.

Graptosedum ‘Ghosty’

This ghost of a succulent is just what you’d expect. The leaves are pale with hints of blue, gray, and pink. It’s very similar to the Graptopetalum Ghost Plant. The two are differentiated by flower color: Ghost Plant has yellow and ‘Ghosty’ has white.

Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’, ‘Peach Blossom’

One of the most dazzling succulents, ‘California Sunset’ is a myriad of orange and pink. The leaves actually start out gray and then change color as they mature. A fully-grown rosette will resemble a vibrant sunset in color.

Graptosedum ‘Francesco Baldi’

This is a sprawling succulent with long, hanging stems and rosettes close to the ground. Its leaves are blue-gray, but turn pink in the sun. During the winter, they may even become purplish-brown.

‘Francesco Baldi’ has a common cultivar called Graptosedum ‘Francesco Baldi’ f. cristata. Don’t let the long name bore you though – this succulent is pretty cool. The rosettes grow on top of a crest, which is a thick, cactus-like stem. This succulent is sure to catch attention.

Graptosedum ‘Darley Sunshine’

This dainty Graptosedum has thick, long leaves with pink tips. It produces lots of offsets, which are great for propagation.

Graptosedum Care

Graptosedums are fairly low-maintenance. With these guidelines, all gardeners can have success with them.

Light & Temperature

Graptosedums love sunlight! They need 6 hours of full to partial sun a day. Depending on the variety, you may see their colors deepen with the light.

Keep in mind that too much of a good thing is detrimental to plants. Graptosedums can get sunburned. To avoid this, keep your succulent out of direct heat and let it adjust to new locations.

Morning sunlight is ideal for Graptosedums because it’s bright but not too direct. Plant your succulent where it can get light in the morning and partial shade in the afternoon.

Water & Humidity

As a typical succulent, the ‘soak and dry’ method is perfect for this desert plant. Water your Graptosedum consistently during the growing season and cut back in the winter.

When watering, completely soak the soil. This will allow your Graptosedum to store what it needs for the next drought. Mimic this drought by letting the soil dry out completely before watering again. You might even leave the soil dry for a day or two.

Soil

Well-draining soil is crucial for Graptosedum. If left sitting in water, the succulent will become mushy and rot. Choose a pre-made succulent soil or mix your own. The ratio of soil to perlite or sand should be at least 1:1.

If you notice the soil isn’t draining well, mix in more perlite or sand as soon as possible.

Fertilizer

Applying fertilizer during the growing season will give your Graptosedum a boost. You can do so at the beginning of spring and fall, or throughout the growing season. Apply fertilizer weekly at the most.

Succulents prefer either balanced or low-nitrogen fertilizer. For easy application, choose a liquid one that’s diluted to ¼ strength; most specialty succulent fertilizers are like this.

Repotting

If you’re growing Graptosedum in a container, it may need to be repotted as it grows. Remember, it’s normal for Graptosedum to hang over the edge of the container. You’ll need to watch the roots to tell if the plant has enough space.

When repotting, use new, dry soil. Once the succulent is settled, don’t water it for about a week. If the roots were damaged while repotting, they could rot in the water. Waiting gives them time to heal.

Propagation

Graptosedum can be easily propagated by stem and leaf cuttings. To take leaf cuttings, just pull or twist them off the stem. Be gentle though! If part of the leaf is left behind, it may not grow. For stem cuttings, cut about an inch below the rosette. Remove any leaves from the bottom of the cutting.

Let your cuttings dry out for a few days. You’ll see the cut end ‘scab over’. Once dry, place them on well-draining soil (stem cuttings can be inserted in the soil). Keep the soil and cutting moist. The cutting will send out roots and leaf cuttings will grow new rosettes. Once your new plant is established, resume its normal watering schedule.

Graptosedum also produces offsets (long stems that grow outwards). These can be propagated just like stem cuttings. If left alone, they might root by themselves.

Pruning

A hugely common problem with succulents is etiolation. This is when the stems stretch out in search of sunlight. Luckily, it’s easily fixed in Graptosedums. Pruning back a stretched stem will allow new rosettes to grow from the stump. This will help the plant grow more compact (provided you give it more sun!).

Prune your Graptosedum with clean clippers. Cut the stem close to the soil and keep the area dry. Instead of throwing away the cutting, we encourage you to try out propagation!

Troubleshooting

Graptosedums have no more problems than most other succulents. If you prevent and watch for the following, your succulent should stay healthy and happy.

Growing Problems

As mentioned, etiolation is a frequent problem in succulents. Prevent it by giving your Graptosedum plenty of sunlight. If your plant is already stretched, prune back the stems so they can regrow close to the ground. Move your Graptosedum to a new location so it won’t stretch again.

Succulent enthusiasts often notice that the leaves are falling off their plant. It’s natural for old leaves towards the bottom to drop. If the fallen leaves are newer ones from the top though, your succulent is probably overwatered. You’ll need to let the soil dry out more between waterings. Also, observe the soil when you water it and note how fast it drains. Adjust the sandiness as needed.

When underwatered, Graptosedum’s leaves may become discolored and wrinkly. Usually, if you just give it a good soak, the plant will be fine.

Pests

Mealybugs and aphids are both minuscule insects that feed on plant sap. Symptoms of an infestation include yellow wilted leaves, black sooty mold, and the appearance of ants.

Both pests can be removed by spritzing the succulent with insecticidal soap. For a small number of mealybugs, just dab each insect with a q-tip soaked in rubbing alcohol.

Deter mealybugs and aphids by planting with worm castings. An enzyme in worm castings called chitinase breaks down the exoskeleton of insects. It also benefits succulents in other ways. It improves soil aeration and tilth, increases moisture retention, and provides some disease-fighting assistance. If you use worm castings in your potting mix, be sure to mix in a little extra perlite to offset the extra moisture the castings will provide.

Diseases

The most common affliction for Graptosedums – and most succulents – is rot. This happens when the plant is constantly moist and begins to decay. Rot is usually in the roots but can occur in any part of the succulent. It may lead to bacterial infections.

Prevent rot by keeping your Graptosedum dry. When watering, try not to splash any water on the plant itself. Most importantly, use sandy soil that won’t retain water.

If your Graptosedum has started to rot, save it by cutting off the affected sections with a sterile knife. Let the wounds dry out for a few days before replanting in new, dry soil. If your succulent is too rotted to save, clip off any healthy leaves or stems for propagation.

The origin of the plant will make its rosettes tolerate heat, frost, and drought.

He is always a favorite carefree windowsill citizen, an excellent addition to any garden

It is propagated by stem division or by individual leaves, rooted in sand or dried vermiculite.

Any rosette that emerges has the potential to finish and start a new plant.

Even a falling leaf will take root below the mother plant and produce a new rosette quickly.

Because the leaves and root cuts effortlessly, graptopetalums are some of the easiest succulents to propagate.

Exposure

Likes a light shade from the sun (which will take a couple of hours of sun without a problem), but it adapts very well to full sun and shade as well.

You can winter so they also grow under the lights in a cool room in the house.

Graptosedums are chameleons.

Those grown in partial shade tend to be blue-gray in color; in its entirety, the hot sun, pink-gray; in full sun, pink gray to yellow.

Soil

Although you need a soil that is sandy and porous with good drainage, the soil must be able to maintain the moisture that the plant requires.

The ideal soil should contain equal parts of clay with small gravel added (for example, pumice or lava sand). Good drainage is essential.

Watering

During the summer growth period the plant seems to need much more water than the succulent average.

Water when the plant is dry and do not water again until the soil is completely dry again.

He doesn’t like excess watering.

Pay special attention to ensure that they do not rot at the root of the soaked soil.

During October to March, water in moderation, only with enough water to maintain wilting foliage.

In a very humid situation in winter, it can rot although completely dry. He likes dry air as much as dry soil.

Fertilization

The fertilizer should be applied only once in early spring, diluted to ¼ of the dose recommended on the label.

Climate

It is generally recommended to avoid temperatures below zero, but it is a very resistant succulent and can recover from being frozen and is useful in areas that fall below -5 ° (-7 °) C.

It requires low temperature for formation of flowers and will not bloom unless it has been hibernated for at least a month at 15 ° C or less. USDA zones 9-11.

Pests and diseases

There are no serious problems with insects or diseases.

Watch for aphids and scale. Mealybugs infestations are also a frequent problem.

Human dangers

None

Uses

A large plant for use as a vegetation cover, in gravel gardens, paved areas, rock gardens, in hanging baskets or pots, or spilling onto the walls.

It is a bit fragile so avoid handling when possible and not for planting in areas with heavy traffic.

Because the stems are so fragile, it is best to choose the best location for the ghost plant and then don’t move it.

Try mixing with other succulents and alpine plants.

Conclusion

Find a spot where this plant gets the appropriate amount of sun.

That would ideally be a morning sunspot.

If you’re acclimating the plant to full sun for the first time, start with an hour or two, depending on the season and the intensity of the light where you are.

The California Sunset succulent has minimal fertilization needs.

When it is growing in proper soil and sunlight, and in the right container, you’ll see growth and development during its growing season.

Do all this and you will be fine.

Plant of the month: “California Sunset”

by Danika Passeggio February 24, 2016

The Graptosedum or “California sunset”, known to us as Joan here at Cubespruce has beautiful orangish pink coloring, resembling the perfect sunset (which is where it gets it’s name). Although we currently live in sunny California, as native New Yorkers we know how cold, dark, and long the winter months (especially those post holiday) can be. That’s why we think the “California sunset” is the perfect plant to brighten up any office during this time of year.

Graptosedum is a hybrid between Graptopetalum and Sedum, and bears greenish rose, fleshy leaves. When temperatures cool down, those greenish rose leaves turn to more of an orangish copper hue, making it the perfect plant to warm up your winter.

This succulent tends to bloom in late winter or early spring, requires very little care (drought tolerant), and loves indirect sunlight – another reason why this is a wintertime favorite for us at CubeSpruce.

One thing to keep in mind about this plant, and many succulents in general, is the opportunity to propagate and grow more! Just by clipping one of the leaves at its base, generous watering, and careful placement, a whole new California Sunset can be born! Not to be too much of a cliché, but when the sun sets on one of these little guys, many more rise to become sunsets of their own.

We hope you love this plant as much as we do; it can be a nice splash of color in some of these darker months
