The origin of this wonderful plant is quite an enigmatic mystery. There is no known record of Sedum ‘Burrito’ having occurred in habitat. As ‘Burrito’ seems similar to Sedum morganianum, which is native to Mexico and forms long cascading stems of glaucous blue-green leaves, there has been conjecture that perhaps ‘Burrito’ is a natural Sedum morganianum hybrid. As similar plants in habitat often cascade down rocky inclines where the water drains swiftly away from the plant, it is preferable to plant Sedum 'Burrito' in a porous soil with good drainage. Excellent for hanging basket culture, or in brightly lit atriums or patios with filtered light. Consider hanging several to give your patio a sense of lush succulent greenery. The pink-red flowers, appearing at the end of the dreadlock-like stems, are positively delicious.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
