Notes:

This appears to be a succulent which obviously grows well in Southern California. The leaves are pinkish gray and thick to the touch. They turn yellowish as they age. Once yearly, the plants sprouts lots of thin tendrils which eventually bloom with tiny, detailed flowers. I think I need to prune this plant but don’t know how todo that.

    As you could see from this included link and others videos, succulents are very easy to prune back. https://youtu.be/dgOPAizWqR0

    Maybe a type of Graptopetalum (ghost plant)(?). Check out the included link below for Graptopetalum pentandrum ssp. superbum. Click on images to enlarge. The second link is for pruning and propagating succulents.
