Sedum leaves look dry and shriveled?

My sedum Sunsparkler (the younger pink stalks) have been getting dry, shriveled, browning tips? What’s weird is the mature stalks aren’t showing any signs of the problem, just the younger pink ones ? I water it frequently because it’s in full sun for most of the day, it seems to prefer a more frequent watering, and it’s growing season for this plant. What could be causing this issue ? First two photos show the problem leaves, and the third is the mature stalk that is growing just fine and healthy. They are solid pink when younger and gradually develop the green markings. #PlantInfo #helpneeded #GregGang #greggershelpinggreggers #Sedum #SucculentSquad #Succulents #Succulent #GreggersSupportingGreggers

From the pictures it looks like the youngest, thinnest leaves are most affected. I would chalk that up to heat and sun and drying.

For now, is there a place you can put the plant that gives it partial shade just until the stems and leaves mature and harden?

It’s a BEAUTIFUL plant!
@sarahsalith that’s what I was thinking !! I do try to put it in partial shade because that’s what I was thinking the issue was, but it then can cause the others to etoliate slightly. But thank you so much for your answer ! I will try to balance the sun better and see what happens !
@TidyTigerpear good luck! It really is a pretty plant. (:
@sarahsalith thank you!
