Sedum

Sedum lucidum

Sedum lucidum is a hairless perennial succulent shrub that has distinctive rosettes of very fat, lustrous, green leaves, edged in red, in bright light. It has a spreading habit and is a great addition to a sunny rockery or spilling over the edge of a pot. Wise waterwise choice for a hardy landscape or pretty succulent in a pot.
