I love this very hardy cultivar. I don't know why the info states it as being sold as Perle von Nurmberg... that's an entirely different plant! I have an extreme Mediterranean climate - arid summers often over 45c, and very cold wet winters but seldom below 2c overnight. Maybe one frost every 3 years - and coastal salty winds. Fred Ives takes it all and asks for more - and looks great while doing it.

Succulents are long term plants where temperatures remain warm. Garden height is the final height the plant will reach after several years, not the height the plant will reach in one season. Succulents are generally slow growing plants and will take time to mature.
Graptoveria - Fred Ives was formerly sold as Echeveria - Perle Von Nurnberg.
