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 provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Pachyveria 'Bill Baker'.
