Sedum don’t require a lot of water and will develop their best colors if they get at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. They won’t grow well in heavy, mucky, or high clay soils.

Will an overwatered succulent recover?
Yes. If you lost a lot of leaves from overwatering, the plant will eventually recover as long as it is not rotting.
