The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent groundcover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This species forms a low carpet of small, scalloped 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. Easy to propagate; simply break pieces off in early summer and stick them in the ground. Deciduous; trim stems and dead flower heads back in early spring. Shade tolerant.
