One of the brightest foliage plants on the nursery in spring. Very compact and tight in habit, barely 5cm (2)" high, with taller heads of yellow flowers in summer. Like most Sedums, it will disappoint in a rich soil. Full sun, good drainage and a sparse diet suit it. Small enough for a trough or sink where the drier conditions will suit it too.
Although easily grown, it's a very fragile plant - tiny bits will fall off when handled and root where they land. This can be used to create a very natural effect in the garden. And if you open your package of plants and this falls to pieces, don't worry!
We have grown this plant for years having received it under this name. It is a much finer plant than the S. acre 'Aureum' commonly offered.
