Sedum 'Aurora', otherwise known as the ‘Pink Jelly Bean’ plant, is a variety of sedum from Mexico. With a taller growth habit that will begin to drape as each stem reaches its full length, ‘Aurora’ features rounded, lime green leaves with hot pink tips – the tone of which will deepen in bright sunlight. While each stem reaches a height of only six inches tall, the clumping nature of this plant means that it can readily fill a pot or corner of the rock garden (in temperate climates) of up to three feet wide!
As indicated by its native arid habitat, ‘Aurora’ prefers sunny and dry conditions – bright light and the ‘soak and dry’ watering method, coupled with porous soil in a well-draining pot, will go a long way towards keeping this variety content. Additionally, adequate airflow will also help to ensure that the closely packed leaves do not succumb to rot or pests. With the proper care, you will be rewarded with delicate yellow flower clusters each spring.
While overall an extremely hardy plant, ‘Aurora’s leaves can be easily dislodged from the stem when jostled – though if the fallen leaves are placed onto moist soil, they will quickly root and begin to form a new propagation! This variety must also be protected from frost, as it cannot withstand winter temperatures below Zone 10.
If pets or small children share a home with ‘Aurora,’ it is important to note that this plant may cause mild gastric distress if ingested.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
