unidenitfied pinkish leafy succlent plant

(Michigan )


About the size of a quater, pinkish tinted leaves. growing zone 6, growing it indoors. its a succulent drought resistant plant. not sure of the name of what it is.

Hi Les, this is one of the toughest and most reliable drought tolerant plants - Sedum spurium varieties that have this color leaves are a classic garden plant too, not just for xeriscaping.

The red or mahogany varieties are great butterfly attractants, but they really need to be grown outdoors. If you can stand to do it, put this guy outside, as they have all kinds of problems indoors. For one thing, it's not bright enough for them, and they are prone to getting aphids or other pests.

You can see more about a few different red creeping stonecrop here: Sedum spurium 'Dragons Blood', it's close cousin 'Fuldaglut' or 'Fireglow' and the darker purple 'Voodoo'

Hope that helps,
Jacki
