USDA Zone: 2-9

The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent groundcover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a low carpet of tiny succulent green leaves, the tips of each stem turning buttery yellow in the spring. Tiny golden star flowers appear in early 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.
