Please identify this beautiful succulent!
by Marsha Sinkevich
I live in Mentone California. I bought this lovely bluish plant with purple stalks about 3 years ago, as a plant about 6 inches high. The plant was not identified. It is now about 2.5 feet high for the tallest branch, and several more are just under. We've got a two week run of frosty night temperatures, and some of my succulents were hit badly. This one has protection from a nearby pine tree, and does not seem affected.
It has developed bloom stems, which haven't grown beyond tiny buds due to the cold weather. E.g., tonight we are expecting a low of 28 degrees; should be 34 tomorrow night.
Besides its name, would appreciate info re its cold tolerance and how big it gets. If it can tolerate some frost, I may plant cuttings of this plant in these locations.
Thank you so much. And thanks for providing this service-knowing what the plant is helpful in providing the correct culture. Best regards.
