Sedeveria 'Letizia' is a beautiful small succulent plant,branching at the base with a cluster of stems that grow up to 8 inches(20 cm)tall,with up to 2.5 inches(6.2 cm)wide rosettes,bearing many tightly arranged up to 1 inch(2.5 cm)long,green,deltoid shaped leaves with fine hairs along the margins.The older rosette sit atop slender bare stems while youngers ones have leaves the length of the stems.The leaves turn red in the sun with colder temperatures in winter but are green in summer or when grown in shade.In spring multiple inflorescences rise from the below the top of the rosette and,rising above the rosette,bear flowers in a scorpiod cyme that are white with petal tips barely pink with the stem bristling with fine hairs.
How to grow and care
When growing Sedum,keep in mind that Sedum plants need very little attention or care.They will thrive in conditions that many other plants thrive in,but wil do just as well in less hospitable areas.They are ideal for that part of your yard that gets too much sun or too little water to grow anything else.A common name for Sedum is Stonecrop,due to the fact that many garderners joke that only stones need less care and live longer.
Sedum is easily planted.For shorter varieties,simply laying the plant on the ground where you want it to grow is normally enough to get Sedum plant started there.They will send out roots from wherever the stem is touching the ground and root itself.If you would like to further ensure that the plant will start there,you can add a very thin covering of soil over the plant.
For taller Sedum varieties,you can break off one of the stems and push it into the ground where you would like to grow it.The stem will root very easily and a new plant will be eatablished in a season or two.
