I found these hanging baskets with sedum from my aunt's garden in Northridge, CA
Sedum morganianum


Close-up of the leaves:


This is another sedum, and others ID it as sedum burrito..

I thought the sedum morganianum is the same as sedum burrito, oh well, I guess got to learn those names right! Hilarious!

I see some differences in the shape and lay of the leaves between the two types you show above Tarev.
Let me look into it. Meanwhile maybe some one else here has the answer?

Wow, what fun!

Would sedums like these grow similarly for me in my Zone 7 as these ones in Cali? Or is there another variety that would do better in my area, either indoors or out?

SS, they would do fine for you. You would just have to bring them indoors for the winter.
Isn't it a beauty? Lovey dubby

Hi drewtoby. Welcome!

Sedum morganianum is such a wonderful plant. There is some confusion on the two types found. One has shorter, rounder leaves and may be a subspecies of S. morganianum.
Many times it is called S. burrito.
This one was labeled as Sedum Hybrid 'Donkey Tail Burrito'
