We have grown this native Mexican (not from Paraguay as the name implies) succulent for decades and were shocked to find out years ago, that it has amazing winter hardiness...our plants have easily survived 7 degrees F. The 6" wide rosettes that form atop succulent stems are composed of fleshy, brittle, silver-brown leaves. If the leaves of your Graptopetalum paraguayense break off...which they will, not to worry since each leaf will root and sprout a new plant. Eventually, ghost plant will make a patch to 15" wide. Good drainage and protection from winter moisture in cold climates is essential.
