Ghost Plant Overview
This hardy succulent has greyish-white opalescent leaves. Interestingly, the overlapping triangular leaves form a Fibonacci spiral. When grown in semi-shaded areas they tend to be blue/grey, whereas, when grown in full sunshine, they can be pinkish grey. In spring, they produce dainty sprays of miniature star-shaped yellow flowers. Spectacular as a mass-planted water-wise groundcover, they are very easy to propagate, but be careful as the stems are brittle and can break easily.
