Sedum nevii

Print Plant

  

The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent groundcover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a low carpet of small, succulent blue-green leaves and is smothered in tiny spikes of white flowers, with contrasting purple anthers, in summer. A fast grower, this is best kept away from slower alpine plants that it might smother. Excellent as a lawn substitute. Also a good choice for tubs and mixed containers. Easy to propagate; simply break pieces off and stick them in the ground. Evergreen.
