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!  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  x Pachyveria 'Bill Baker'.
