Sedum

 

Sedum is a genus of about 400 species of leaf succulents, from the old and new world in the northern hemisphere. They vary in habit from annual groundcovers to shrubs. Their flowers have 5 petals.

The cultivation requirements of the species are quite different. Some species are very cold resistant, but don't like heat. Some species are tropical and don't take any frost. Sedum don't do very well in Phoenix extreme heat. They lose their leaves and stay with increasingly naked stems until they decide to rot alltogether.
