Sedum rubrotinctum 'Aurora' - Pink Jelly Bean
Pink Jelly Bean (Sedum rubrotinctum 'Aurora'): A long-time favorite soft sedum from Mexico. This stemmed grower has round, fleshy leaves that spiral up its stem. It varies in color from pale green to pink and cream, with the brightest pigments showing when it's grown in bright sunlight. It makes it a wonderfully colorful accent in potted arrangements.
Jelly Bean is an excellent grower as long as it is not left in heavy, moist soil. It is exceptionally tolerant of full sun and drought, but it does need protection from frost. Fortunately, Jelly Bean can easily overwinter indoors if it is in a container with a drainage hole and gritty, well-draining soil. Water deeply, but only when the soil is completely dry.
Over time, Jelly Bean will form prolific clumps and the stems will become long enough to sprawl and gently cascade from containers. In spring, it produces clusters of tiny, yellow flowers that attract pollinators. This variety is one of the easiest to propagate and it will readily grow roots from both stem cuttings and leaves.
