X Sedeveria 'Jet Beads' (Jet Beads Stonecrop) - A distinctive hybrid of Sedum and Echeveria with dark bronze tinted green foliage surrounding short sprawling stems to 4 inches tall. The pointy tipped leaves are arranged along stems like a string of beads and take on a near black tone in cooler weather, giving this plant its cultivar name. We have not seen this plant flower but likely it will have yellow flowers in summer months. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to very little. Hardy down to at least 25 F. Great in a low container or mixed dish gardens, as a groundcover. The parentage of this plant is not well documented but of the verified X Sedeveria hybrids it seems closest to X Sedeveria 'Whitestonecrop' which was a result of crossing Echeveria prolifica with Sedum stahlii. X Sedeveria 'Jet Beads' was introduced by Proven Winners as part of their Retro Succulent line - image courtesy of Proven Winners.  This description is based on our research and on the our observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery and landscape plantings in our own nursery garden and other gardens that we visit. We also will incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing X Sedeveria 'Jet Beads'
