One of the tiniest Stonecrops, native to Sprain and found in dry rocks and banks.

Useful as a skirt for potted plants, troughs, bonsai and in the rock garden. A nice choice for a 'green roof'.

Tolerates a hot dry site once established.

Indeed, this is a very small sedum. In fact, I was a bit taken aback when I received it. But it is perfect for miniature gardening, succulent wreaths and succulent terrariums. Very charming and I've fallen in love with it.
