Sedum rubrotinctum

This succulent produces fleshy, jelly-bean shaped green leaves with red tips. The Red Jelly Beans grow to about 10cm tall, and will eventually lean back to the ground and trail producing new roots where it touches soil. They produce a cluster of yellow flowers on tall stems. They are drought-tolerant, hardy and look stunning in rockeries, hanging baskets and water-wise gardens.
