Sedum adolphi is a perennial succulent originally from Mexico, which became popular due to its unusual appearance. The succulent is brightly colored and can reach 20 cm (8 inches) in height. It is also worth noting that the golden Sedum is part of the Sedum genus and belongs to the Crassulaceae family.
Sedum adolphi is easy to identify by yellow-green leaves shaped like a soccer ball and are 3.5 cm (1.4 in) long. If the succulent has enough sunlight access, its leaves acquire a red-orange shade. Golden Sedum is a creeping plant reaching 60 cm (23 inches) in length.
At the end of winter, small white-cream flowers resembling umbrellas or stars appear. A characteristic feature of flowering is that the flowers grow one after the other, so it is not uncommon to observe when some blooms and others wither.
