Crassula pubescens subsp. radicans, is a stunning sedum with tiny leaves that can turn intensely red when it's grown under the stress of full sun and drought. The leaves are green with red tip most of the year, however, if not given enough sunlight. Roots grow from the leaf nodes freely, enabling this sedum to spread and form a large carpet over time, hence its nickname "Sedum Red Carpet". It is an extremely low maintenance plant that requires very little water and can survive in most soil conditions. In late winter and early spring, it produces cute clusters of tiny white flowers on short stalks a few inches above the foliage.
Soil: Clay Soil, Sandy Soil, Loamy Soil, Drought/Dry Soil

Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied).
Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging
We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you.
Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

mine had to recover from being delivered during a very cold time and wasn't red at all, but now it's starting to grow a little and develop red tips. I leave it in pretty dry soil with a glass terrarium bowl over it and it's doing well.
Thank you for the great plants :) They are great quality! And thank you for also responding to my email inquiry so thoughtfully and quick. I am new to succulents but would love to quickly build my collection. I will be a return customer for sure!
