Our neighbor, the extraordinary landscaper Dan, gave us this drought resistant plant yesterday. It's a Pork and Beans Sedum. The name Pork and Beans made me wonder what other sedum varieties are called. Here is a selection:

Crazy Ruffles, Postman's Pride, Sea Lettuce, Burro Tail, Witch's Moneybags, Queen's Crown, Hens and Chickens, Dragon's Blood, and my favorite, Chubby Fingers.
