Graptosedum ‘amicie’


Common synonyms include Graptoveria ‘Amicie’ and Sedum ‘Amicie’.


Originally, Graptosedum ‘Amicie’ is thought to have originated in the semi-desert regions of Mexico. This hybrid thrives in arid, well-drained environments, which mimic its native habitat. It’s commonly found in rock gardens, desert landscapes, and as a popular addition to drought-tolerant gardens worldwide. Its resilience to dry conditions makes it a favored choice for gardeners in arid and semi-arid regions.


Graptosedum ‘Amicie’ is a hybrid succulent belonging to the Crassulaceae botanical family. The plant presents a stunning rosette appearance, with leaves that blend hues of bronze, pink, and green. The leaves are thick, fleshy, oval, and have a waxy coating, which helps in water retention. During the cooler months, the leaf color intensifies, bringing out more vivid pinks and purples. The plant typically grows to about 15 cm in height and can spread up to 20 cm wide. The succulent typically flowers in the spring. The exact timing can vary depending on the climate and growing conditions, but generally, you can expect to see blooms from late winter to early spring. The flowers are small, star-shaped, and usually yellow or white, adding a delightful contrast to the colorful foliage.


This is a slow growing plant, easy to cultivate. The best sun-exposure is in bright place but is recommended to avoid direct sun-light in the hottest periods. The plant does not like temperatures below 6°C so it needs to be placed indoors in the coldest periods. The perfect soil is a well-drained soil that let the water to drain away and avoid root rot. To achieve this feature, you can mix the pumice soil, clay and soil. Remember to use a perforating pot to drain excess water. Watering is very important for this species and should be done well: during the vegetative period you can water the plant (every 7 days), checking that the soil is completely dry before watering again; in winter you should stop the watering to allow the plant to enter dormancy. If you want a faster and lush growth you can fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season with the specific fertilizers for succulents; stop fertilizing throughout the winter. You should repot the plant every 2 years in a pot 2 cm wider. Repotting should be done early in the growing season with fresh new potting soil. Be careful to red spiders and mealy bugs.


Propagation of Graptosedum ‘Amicie’ is relatively easy and can be successfully achieved through leaf cuttings or offsets. Leaf cuttings should be allowed to callous over a few days before being placed in well-draining soil. Offsets, or small rosettes that form at the base of the plant, can be gently removed and replanted. Both methods require minimal water until roots have established. The simplicity of propagation makes Graptosedum ‘Amicie’ a popular plant among beginners in succulent gardening.


The hybrid nature of Graptosedum ‘Amicie’ is a result of crossbreeding between Graptopetalum and Sedum species, leading to flowers that exhibit features from both parent plants.
