  1. I count it a success when I read a blog post and find just what I needed that I didn’t know. I have a planting of rooted graptopetalum that needed ‘something’ but I couldn’t figure it out. Your photo of lavender succulent and purple alyssum fills that need! Why didn’t I think of purple alyssum? I forgot it comes in purple! Perfect. The companions are palest pink Pentas and Persian Shield.
