Sedum, Succulent, Cactus: What’s The Difference?

Mary Ann King is a Master Gardener from Yankton. She writes about the differences between a sedum, a succulent, and a cactus. You may have seen these three plants at a nursery and noticed their similarities in appearance.

Sedum has many forms. See the example on the left. Note the thick leaves of the succulent in the middle. Cactus on the right has thorns.
