Sedum dasphyllum - Corsican Sedum
Corsican Sedum is an easy-to-grow succulent that is perfect for the houseplant enthusiast that wants a little flavor of the desert added to their collection. Thick, luscious leaves of the Corsican Sedum create a dense mat of foliage, making it a fabulous choice for a hanging basket or for a space where the foliage can ramble downward. Diminutive, star-shaped flowers pepper the foliage in spring-summer and are a treat to see. The Corsican Sedum can even be left outside in warmer climates (zone 9).
