(Least Stonecrop)

This tiny mat forming succulent is delicate choice for evergreen surface cover in small gardens and containers. Native to Turkey and western Asia, it is found at middle to lower elevations of mountains where they grow in rocky niches of cliff faces. This neat little evergreen is composed of short stems bearing tiny red tipped green leaves in densely held semi-rosettes. They develop into masses that maintain a relatively held at uniform height, like the stitches in a needlepoint canvas. The flatness...

(Burro's Tail, Donkey's Tail)

In the wild, the stems of burro's tail sprawl like snakes across the rocky soil. It becomes a beautiful specimen when grown in a hanging basket so its heavy stems dangle straight down like dreadlocks or chains. An evergreen succulent from the arid parts of Mexico, burro's tail is sensitive to frost.

The stems are somewhat woody but fleshy, each weighted down by hundreds of small, tear drop-shaped leaves. The pointy leaves are plump and often curl, colored pale seafoam green to light gray-green....

(Palmer's Sedum)

This beautiful blue green spreading succulent offers a tidy little perennial that mounds, spreads and modestly dangles from edges. It is a native of the mountains of Mexico growing at low to middle elevations in association with agave and pine woodlands. It prefers to dwell at the edges of shade where exposure is protected and variable. Due to the aridity of these regions it’s clear this is a more drought resistant mountain succulent that will thrive throughout the inland West.

(Jenny's Stonecrop)

Often going as Sedum rupestre, this fine-textured stonecrop is a robust, creeping, evergreen perennial from Europe. Hardy, sun-loving and drought tolerant, it is grown for its carpets of narrow, fleshy, needle-like foliage. The leaves are typically blue-green and often become tinged with orange or red in winter. Flat-topped clusters of small yellow star-like flowers open in July atop nodding stems that become erect. Bumblebees and butterflies visit the flowers.

(Rock Stonecrop)

A bright-leaved form of a robust, creeping, evergreen perennial from Europe, 'Angelina' makes a fine rock garden or container plant for cold climates. It spreads via rooting stems to form fine-textured mats of bright yellow-green, needle like foliage that darkens to bronze and red in very cold weather.

In early summer it bears branched clusters of yellow star-like flowers. These are attractive to bumblebees and butterflies. A rock garden favorite, it asks for full sun and porous relatively...

(Stonecrop)

Recognizable by its winter flowers and its jellybean shaped, often red-tinted leaves, this cold-tender, evergreen, shrubby perennial is a common sight in gardens of the western United States and of its native Mexico. Short, densely leaved young shoots elongate to form flopping stems with well-spaced foliage. The sprawling stems root where they contact soil. This results in a rather barren center, which is why it is often grown with other more fine textured succulents to cover the thin spots. Abundant...

(Stonecrop)

Distinguished from the closely related Sedum kamtschaticum by its more compact growth and its narrower foliage, Sedum selskianum is a hardy, handsome, and well-behaved perennial from the Amur River region of Northeast Asia. The seed-grown cultivar 'Goldilocks' is an especially compact selection. The flat, minutely hairy, lance-shaped leaves are alternately deployed on dense, upright, low, forming a lush mound. The leaves have a prominent midrib and serrated edges. Abundant flat...

(Six-angled Stonecrop, Tasteless Stonecrop, Watchchain Stonecrop)

Six sided stonecrop is delicate and yet remarkably cold hardy, with fine stems and bright golden flowers. The species is native to mountain ranges of Europe where it thrives on rocky cliffs and eroded ground that is perfectly drained and soils porous. Masses of short green stems are composed of layered leaves which may stand upright or trail depending on their location. On elevated locations such as rock gardens, they tend to spill over edges to create the illusion of a living waterfall.

(Carnea Stonecrop, Spoon-leaved Stonecrop)

This delightful succulent evergreen perennial from the mountains of western North America forms a beautiful dense mat of small colorful whorled leaves. Clustered in tight upright rosettes, the paddle-shaped, blue-green leaves usually have burgundy tinting and a waxy white surface bloom. The coloring is highly variable which has led to many named selections. Small clusters of starry bright yellow flowers spangle the foliage in spring. Plants grow vigorously in spring and fall, slowing during summer....
