A hardy, easy-to-grow perennial for anyone with a sunny garden, sedum is a succulent plant that grows in tall, upright clumps. Pinkish-red star-shaped blooms form in tight masses and sit atop fleshy stems and succulent foliage. Their height and butterfly attracting blooms make them good candidates for border and pollinator gardens. All sedums are succulents, and as such, store excess moisture in their leaves, stems, and roots. Doing so makes them tolerant and even adaptable to a wide range of drought-like conditions like low precipitation, hot and dry conditions, and sandy soil.
