Sedum oreganum

Oregon Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.485.280

The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent groundcover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This species forms a low, spreading mat of succulent green leaves, like a tiny Jade Plant. Yellow starry flowers appear in summer. Also well-suited to growing in tubs or alpine trough gardens. Evergreen. During the summer, plants turn a bright crimson-red colour when grown in full sun, with lean dry soil. Native to the west coast mountains, and particularly suited to areas with high precipitation.
