Sedum hernandezii, native to Puebla, Mexico, is related to Sedum furfuraceum. It forms clusters of stems to 4" in height with very chubby emerald green leaves that have the same "cracked" epidermis as Sedum furfuraceum. Large, star-shaped yellow flowers appear in winter and spring. Sedum hernandezii is one of the "Jellybean" sedums so named for their exceedingly plump and colorful jellybean shaped leaves. A very low grower, this sedum does well as a potted specimen, great for dish gardens, windowsills, wreaths or small area ground cover, and works well in the nooks and crannies of a rock garden landscape. They like to be moderately moist but never overly wet. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Almost any good potting mix or porous soil with adequate drainage will suit these succulents. Sedums like good air circulation, and little or no fertilizer is required. Outdoors provide partial sun to light shade, but they will be unhappy and lose their characteristic color and shape unless given lots of bright light when kept indoors. It has excellent drought and cold tolerance but protect from frost to prevent scarring.
