The ghost plant is that plant you see everywhere, but didn’t know what it was called. With its pinkish-grey succulent leaves and trailing rosette form, ghost plants add a modern touch to container plantings and rock gardens. The ghost plant is a frequent subject of faux plant arrangements, but there’s no reason to buy expensive fake plants when the live specimen is so easy to grow and propagate.
