There are approximately 400 different species of sedums primarily known for their ground covering nature. The wide variety of species and their hardy nature make them suitable for all different types of garden arrangements. Their growth habits range from compact mat-forming plants to shrublike low–growing sedum varieties (which are popular for ground covers and in rock gardens), as well as trailing succulents great for suspending in wall planters . Their leaves are generally oval shaped, very fleshy and can produce brilliant fiery hues when grown in full sun.
