Plant family: Crassulaceae - Stonecrop
Plant type: Groundcover
Plant origin: N/A
Good in Containers
The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent ground cover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This native North American species forms a low carpet of fleshy, rounded green leaves, spreading to form a thick patch. Clusters of bright yellow star flowers appear in summer. A fast grower, this is best kept away from slower alpine plants that it might smother. Good choice for tubs and mixed containers.
