This small stonecrop, purchased at a hardy plant society sale, has been in our garden for two seasons now, and it has yet to bloom. The foliage is rather like that of S. kamtschaticum, but with a blue-green rather than plain green color. Nomenclature is somewhat confused, see discussion below.
|By December, it takes on a cabbage-patch look |
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

Thanks for your input. Neither species name appears in GRIN, and Google references are about evenly split. I will add S. pachyclados as an additional synonym to my page, until I get this sorted out.
|James Cheshire||Jul 30, 2005||Hi Rob, the correct name for this plant is Rhodiola pachyclados. Here's the link to the species page in Flora of Pakistan: tinyurl.com/aodkv.
Incidentally, Platycladus is a monotypic conifer genus, the single species being P. orientalis (chinese arborvitae). I think someone in horticulture just got this confused with the similar-sounding pachyclados (which means thick branch/shoot) and the name stuck.|
Excellent, James. Thanks much - I will update my page.
