Sedum is a large genus of the Crassulaceae, representing about 400 species of leaf succulents, found throughout the northern hemisphere, varying from annual groundcovers to shrubs.

Fatleaf Stonecrop leaves are club-shaped, glaucus pale green, usually with red tips. Very much an upright grower, 10-20 inches tall. Sometimes the stems will bend down from the weight of their succulent leaves. Beautiful yellow flowers appear in the blooming season. Will tolerate some light frost if soil is kept dry. Good houseplant for a sunny window from Mexico.
