Sedum burrito is part of the Crassulaceae family and its native range is Mexico (Veracruz). It is a trailing succulent with a lithophytic growth habit. Stems are pendulous with plump light blue-green leaves which grow horizontally from the stem. Pink star-shaped flowers grow from the ends of the stems. Sedum burrito was discovered in a nursery in Coatepec, Veracruz in Mexico, a botanist spotted it in 1975 and took it back to the US.
Although it is an accepted species, many botanists feel it would be best described as Sedum morganianum burrito.
Genus name is possibly from the Latin ‘sedere’ meaning seat, a reference to the manner in which the plants attach themselves to rocks.
