Sedum tetractinum

Sedum tetractinum
Common name stonecrop
Family crassulaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white (summer-fall)
Size 4"
Light sun

Low-growing stonecrop with round green leaves, larger than most small sedums. The intermixing of rosy and green tones is especially attractive. So far, it hasn't grown into a tight mat in our garden, but I'm still hoping it eventually will develop that habit. We actually purchased this twice, unknowingly: first as an unidentified filler plant in a hypertufa pot arrangement (where the star performer was a tender salvia), and then as the potted plant itself. The salvia has long since perished, but the sedum still lives happily in its porous orb.

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