Sedum
by: Jacki

This is one of the more often grown Sedum or stonecrop, and this one is a tender type, meaning it's not cold hardy. It should be grown as a houseplant for the winter, and go out to a porch or patio for summer. They can't withstand any frost at all.

This one is called Sedum calvifolia, and is quite common in California as a spiller, because it's low growing and forms an interesting foil to taller plants in mixed planters when it drapes over the sides of the pot. It's also recommended for use in wreaths and other crafts.

Although I don't have a dedicated page for this plant, there is a picture of it if you scroll down a bit on this page.

Just so you know, the term 'succulent' means exactly how you've described it, with a lot of water in the stem and fat stubby leaves.
