Graptopetalum paraguayense

Ghost Plant is a type of succulent that belongs to the jade family and is native to Mexico. Its fleshy leaves form a rosette of 3-6 inches in diameter at the tips of its stems. The leaves are whitish-green but become pink-tinged in hot and dry weather and blueish in partial shade. The plant can grow up to 1 foot tall and 2-3 feet wide. As the stems grow, they become pendulous and cascade over a pot or stones, making the plant look aesthetically pleasing. The plant can also be pruned to achieve a bushier look. In spring, the plant forms clusters of tiny star-shaped flowers that are white with small red dots.

Ghost plants can grow in full sun or partial shade but require well-drained soil and are drought-tolerant once established. It is a low-maintenance and deer-resistant plant that can be used in rock gardens, containers, ground cover, or patio. The plant can tolerate temperatures as low as 15 degrees F if given protection.

Ghost plants can easily propagate by rooting leaves, division, or stem cuttings.
