Also known as the "Pink Jelly Bean", sedum "Aurora" is a really striking hybrid succulent with jelly bean shaped leaves that change color from green to red during the summer. While the plant only grows to about 6" tall, it can spread as wide as 3 feet!

Sedums in the succulent world comprise a lot of family members, once numbering close to 600 species but more recently reclassified and combined to a still astonishing 470. You may have heard them referred to as stonecrops, named as such because they are often found in the wild trailing between stones or over rocky ledges. There are many species of Sedum that serve the environmental role of host plants for butterflies. Sedums have leaves that actually store water, allowing them to be pretty tough customers.
