Sedum clavatum is a creeping succulent which produces attractive blue rosettes which can gain a pink tinge when stressed. It is especially interesting when displayed in a hanging basket as it hangs and drapes over the edges, but can also be pruned for a more tidy appearance.

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.
