Sedum Aurora or Jelly Bean Sedum is a colorful plant that turns brightest red with ample sunlight. This is a multicolor plant that grows prolifically and will trail over the side of your planter or window sill arrangement. The plant is commonly called the Jelly bean plant as its leaves resemble little colorful jelly beans. I love to add this as cuttings into arrangements for a pop of color and the overfilling trailing affect.
