  • Special notes:  
    This cultivar has a paler color than the regular variety with leaves varying from pale greenish-yellow in summer to dark pinkish-red in winter. The best color is obtained with some direct sun and exposure to cold. This plant grows as a succulent-leaved rosette on elongating stems from 6 to 8 inches in length. New plants may be grown from leaves (or beans) that drop off or are separated from the stem and laid on the soil. In spring, it produces yellow flowers tinged with red. Sedum rubrotinctum is poisonous and may cause irritation if ingested.
