Welcome to the Sedum Forum, a genus of close to 600 species of perennial succulents.

Most are low-growing, with a variety of textures and leaf colors, as well as attractive blossoms. Their generally compact habit make them well suited to rock gardens and container culture. Most sedum root readily from a broken stem. Most do well in poor soil, in hot sunny exposures, requiring little water. Commonly known as stonecrop. Join the conversation in the Chat Thread and other information filled threads. Post your photos and share in the fun of learning about these great plants.

This plant, sold erroneously as Sedum 'Little Missy', is correctly known as Crassula pellucida ssp. marginalis 'Variegata'.

Talking about Stringy Stonecrop (Sedum sarmentosum), sallyg wrote:

One name for this is "stringy stonecrop." Compact in early spring, after bloom it makes long stringy stray stems. Give it room, or chop it off and dispose (carefully, to prevent starting new plants.)

Talking about Burro's Tail (Sedum morganianum), Baja_Costero wrote:

Trailing succulent with long stems tipped by many small glaucous green leaves, looking a bit like a burro's tail. Flowers appear at the end of the stems and are pinkish red or purple, sometimes orange-yellow, and cup-shaped. When many stems are planted in a container and allowed to grow out for several years, the effect can be spectacular as they cascade over all sides and hang down a considerable distance. Keep plants out of traffic and avoid handling them to reduce the loss of leaves from these hanging stems. Easy to propagate from cuttings (mother plants will branch at the base). Best form with strong light.

This species was known only from cultivation (found at a nursery in Coatepec, Veracruz) until 2010, when it was rediscovered in habitat in central Veracruz. S. morganianum is closely related to S. burrito, also described from plants in cultivation, and some would say that burrito is a hybrid or form of morganianum. Its leaves are less oblong, more roughly spherical, and smaller overall. At least 2-3 of the images on this page look like Baby Burro's Tail (Sedum burrito) to me.

Talking about Many Fingers (Sedum pachyphyllum), Baja_Costero wrote:

Low succulent subshrub or groundcover consisting of upright or oblique, branching stems tipped by rosettes with green-blue, club-shaped, terete leaves. From the Sierra Madre del Sur in Oaxaca, Mexico. Works best as a groundcover if planted densely. A well behaved container plant, though it tends to look better in smaller pots when restarted every few years from short-stemmed cuttings. Easy to propagate from cuttings, which root quickly, and mother plants will branch at the base.

A few different varieties appear in cultivation. Leaf tips typically blush red or pink, more so in the sun. Flowers are bright yellow and open at the base. Strong light is important for best form and color. Provide excellent drainage in cultivation.
