Sedum glaucophyllum

Appalachian Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.485.180

The alpine selections of Stonecrop are excellent edging or rock garden plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This species forms a low, non-spreading clump of light-green leaves. Short sprays of starry white flowers appear in early summer. Also well-suited to growing in tubs or alpine trough gardens. This species seems to prefer a lightly shaded exposure. A good candidate for any collection of fine alpine plants. Evergreen. Native to the eastern USA.
