Species

 Sedum spathulifolium Hook. broadleaf stonecrop

A beautiful broad-leafed sedum that decorates the rock face from northwest Washington State to California.

Numerous tight rosettes of waxy, blue-green leaves give rise to erect stems that sport a cluster of charming yellow flowers.

Use for your sunny rock gardens and other places where your watering hose will not reach!

It grows fast and demands nothing in return except bright sunshine.

It is remarkably adaptable, surviving from USDA 4-10.
