First flowers in its third season
Sedum glaucophyllum

Common name cliff stonecrop
Family crassulaceae
Life cycle perennial

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.
