Genus: Sedum

This succulent comes in many varieties and performs well as ground cover. Coloration, size, flowers and hardiness vary. Some forms appear to have small flat leaves. Others like those known by names such as “pork and beans” and “jelly beans” have a very distinctive appearance as succulents. Sedums do well interplanted with other succulents, used as ground cover, in borders and in rock gardens.
