What makes a plant a Stonecrop???

Can someone please explain to me how I can tell what plants are stonecrop? I know allot of Sedums, I've grown, were stonecrop.... are ALL sedums stonecrop? To me some succulents resemble stonecrop plants. Are stonecrop and succulents good companion plants?
Thank you in advance....... Lola

Stonecrop is a common name like daisy, not a botanical name like Sedum, so there are no hard/fast rules about using it. I've not heard it applied to any plants besides Sedums (some of which have been renamed Hylotelephium.)

Thank you purpleinopp. Stonecrop being a common name instead of a botanical name explains allot for me. I have spent several years trying to figure it out. Thank you again.

Glad to share info. I'm sure you'll do the same when the opportunity presents itself! And I love these plants, by any name! What a beautiful bunch they are.
