Graptosedum Darley Sunshine has thick green leaves with red tips that form a rosette. This variety spreads like a sedum with the rosettes growing out on the ends of long stems.
Darley Sunshine will tolerate some shade but hold back on the water more than if it was in full sun. Graptosedum has a clump-forming habit and grows to a height of approximately 15cm. They are generally easy to propagate, by seeds, leaf cuttings or offsets. If a leaf breaks off, it is likely to root and start a new plant. It can then produce a new rosette quickly.
