Native to Mexico, this popular, readily branching, evergreen perennial has a compact, upright habit, becoming weeping as the stems lengthen. Growing up to 12 in (30 cm), the attractive stems are composed of bluish green, interlocking leaves that have a plump, lanceolate form. In cultivation clusters of long, pinkish red, starry flowers may bloom at the stem tips in summer. It makes an ideal hanging basket plant but should be handled with care as the leaves readily detach.Sedum-morganianum , Donkey's tail, Kaktus anggur
