Hi Horticulturist,

How are you?

My name is Anh. I live in Hill District of Sydney, Australia.

Yersterday, i gone to week-end farmers market and saw this sedum. Can you tell me their names plz.

Thank you very much and have nice day!


Hi Anh, I am well, thank you for asking!

What a pretty group you have!

In Picture A)The little banana plant is a Senecio (sorry I can’t remember the species), I can’t see enough detail on the middle one in the hot pink pot, and then the blue plant is actually the only one that really is a Sedum, it’s the Burro’s Tail, or Sedum morganianum. Hang this one out of the pathway, as the slightest brush will make it drop leaves everywhere.

Picture B) I can’t see enough detail on the yellowish one, so I can’t tell you what that is: The one with pink flowers is a Hoya, the Indian Rope plant, otherwise known as Hoya carnosa ‘Krinkle Kurl’. The green beads are Senecio rowleyanus, the String of Pearls plant. The blue one on the end is possibly some kind of Cotyledon, but again, not enough detail to confirm it.

Hope that helps with some of them anyway.

Actually in photograph B) the plant with the pink flowers is not hoya carnosa i own a hoya and i own the plant in this picture, it is actually crassula springtime. Very beautiful plant with teeny bitty flowers that form in a large cluster like that, from far away it does kinda look like hoya.

Thanks for that, Katsols! I’m always ready to be corrected, and don’t mind a bit. There are so many different succulents, and sometimes they can look so different just from the way they’re grown. They are all fascinating, and I never can know enough about them.
