Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


Whorled Stonecrop has beautiful flowers and foliage. This species is readily distinguished from other yellow-flowered Sedum spp. by its whorled leaves; it is more typical of a stonecrop to have alternate leaves. Leaf shape and size is often important in making an accurate identification. For example, the leaves of the commonly cultivated Sedum acre (Biting Stonecrop) are more short and terete than the leaves of Whorled Stonecrop.
