Why Plant Sedum?

The common name for these beautiful plants is "Stonecrop" but it's not used much these days. In fact, most people now call the sedums "Sedum," and it's all due to one spectacular plant - the pink-blooming butterfly magnet 'Autumn Joy' Sedum, one of the most popular perennials of all time. Now available in a host of colors, sedums are succulents, whose thick, moisture-storing leaves help them perform best in full sun and arid, rocky soil.
