Sedum x orpetti


is my good friend, Suzy’s Lamb’s tail. I simply needed to snap an image of this
nice specimen! Her look after it’s impeccable and it has thrived for
fairly some time in a really vivid spot in her dwelling. It is a hybrid of the extra frequent
Mexican native, the Burro’s tail. Each are pretty simple to develop with
constant consideration.


The Lamb’s tail is distinguished from the Burro’s tail by its fatter leaves which are spaced slightly farther aside alongside their tasseled branches. This may also be grown superbly as a dangling basket.
