Beautiful plant in every season except late winter. After cutting back the new growth is stunning and catches water drops that glisten like jewels.

So far the summer heat here in So. California has been brutal on certain Sedums. Almost half of my potted S. pachyclados has burned. I moved it from full sun to partial sun, hopfully, that will solve this problem.

I did some research on this Sedum species, and found that it enjoys wet winters and its native habitat is Afghanistan and Pakistan at the 7900 to 11,200 ft level.. Is it any wonder why mine burnt. Did I learn a lesson!

Beautiful ground cover, gray- green rosettes on 1-2" stems, white flowers, from Afghanistan.

Plymouth, UK. A garden-worthy perennial; blue-glaucous, evergreen foliage, spreading slowly to form a mat. I grow it as an edging and also in crevices on an old stone wall. I have not seen any flowers. Slugs are not interested which is a bonus.
