    Sedum means “plant that sits.”  “Live forever” is an ancient Greek name for the plant. The Roman Pliny claimed that sedum’s juice treated wounds.  In the 1500’s English herbalist Gerard called sedums “very full of life,” referring to succulent’s quality of being very easy to grow.  William Robinson described Sedum sieboldii as “a beautiful Stonecrop loved by slugs.” (We have not found that, the slug part, to be true.)  American garden cultivation by 1850.
