First hint of flowers in its third season
Sedum glaucophyllum

Common name cliff stonecrop
Family crassulaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers pinkish-white
Size 4"
Light sun
Cultural notes not fussy

Mat-forming stonecrop, native to the Appalachian mountains. They were already cute to the extreme as seedlings, and the grown plants are turning out to be just as charming, spreading nicely (but not aggressively) in each of the locations to which we've assigned it. A worthy addition to our succulent collection. It does not cover itself in flowers like some other mat-formers such as Kamtschat stonecrop, instead sending up a few stalks to represent the plant in the vertical dimension.

Develops into a nice groundcover. This photo shows new growth in March, emerging in bluish green from the purplish leaves that survived winter.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list
