Its name derives from the fact, that it was initially considered native to Paraguay. It grows in the shape of a rosette with fleshy and pointed leaves, ranging in color from pale blue to light purple, so it is often called "mother of pearl" or "ghost plant". With the prolonged exposure to the direct sun, G. paraguayense takes on a wonderful pinkish yellow color. In spring its star-shaped yellow flowers bloom, which are decorated with red dots. This plant is a real "pearl" for your gardens and terraces, which cannot be missing in your succulent plant collection!
