x Pachyveria 'Bill Baker' - A beautiful succulent with 4 to 6 inch wide rosettes of short fat gray succulent leaves. Plant in full coastal sun to light shade in a well drained soil and give occasional to infrequent irrigation. Hardiness is not known other than the ability of this plant to survive a light frost with temperatures right at freezing. We have not tried this plant in the ground but it makes a beautiful potted specimen. It is an intergeneric hybrid that resulted from crossing the Moonstone plant, Pachyphytum oviferum with Echeveria laui, a beautiful species with fat bluish white leaves from Oaxaca. We got this beautiful little succulent from aloe hybridizer John Bleck who got it from the late Bill Baker, who may have performed the cross. Unfortunately we cannot ask him - RIP Bill Baker!  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing x Pachyveria 'Bill Baker'.
