Super easy, thick and lush, growing into a little bush. The variegation is beautiful, and truly complements the growth formation. Pretty little yellow flowers--I recommend highly.

Barely survived for a few years in zone 4, but couldn't quite make it.

Like all sedums, easily propagated from cuttings of the trailing stems. Might look good in a hanging basket.

Scrambling sedum of 4-6" looks muted soft green has a subtle creamy white stripe along the outside of the smooth, tiny, linear leaves.,similar to a lightened up version of olive green, stems have a pinkish caste. The flowers appear in early summer in cymes of yellow nestled just above the foliage.
