Sedum treleasei, a new succulent I found last year, is blooming for the first time now. It is in the stonecrop family and a native to North America.


It has been rather slow to grow so far; getting its roots down, no doubt, so this summer it should take off. I think it is basically a fat-leafed version of donkey or burro tail, so I am looking forward to seeing how it fills out its pot.



While some stonecrops/sedums are cold-hardy, I am pretty sure this one isn’t, and I suggest protection in the cold winter months.


I think it is going to make a nice hanging basket plant as it grows. Stay tuned and we’ll see.
