    This Wild Sedum has a native range from New England & New York down into Georgia & Alabama to Arkansas to Missouri up into eastern Iowa back through Illinois and southern Michigan to NY, growing in damp rocky woods and cliffs and watercourse banks, usually in limestone based soils. It is sold by a good number of native plant nurseries. I have not seen it sold in conventional nurseries that usually sell several cultivars of Eurasian Sedums.

    This is a good choice for a shady rock garden or well-drained woodland garden. It forms mats of evergreen, succulent, small, blue-green leaves 2 to 3 inches tall with 6-inch tall, flat, sprays of starry white flowers in early summer. It would be beautiful growing naturally from pockets of rich, moist soil on calcareous rocks where the creeping stems can dangle and spread.
