Nevius Stonecrop is fairly uncommon in the southeast, occurring on limestone and shaley cliffs in sun or light shade. In Tennessee, it is an endangered plant that has only been found growing along the Ocoee River gorge in the southeastern corner of the state. Tiny, blue-green, succulent leaves form evergreen, 3" high structures resembling tuffets. Early summer flowers are starry white with purple anthers on 4 inch stalks. Although delicate in appearance, Nevius Stonecrop is quite tough. It likes very good drainage and sun or part shade and dry to moist conditions.
