Sedum Pachyphyllum is a stonecrop succulent plant with bright green and pink bean-like leaves. This succulent grows in an upright form along a thin stalk, sprouting multiple new pups along the way. This sedum is exceptionally easy to propagate, and often sprouts new plants as it drops leaves to the soil. This plant grows about 6” tall and flowers beautiful white flowers in the summer time, which look great against the pink and cream-colored plant. Sedums are known for being very self-sufficient plants; they require very little attention and are a great option for anyone new to plant care or someone with little time to spend.
