SEDUM Seeds, obtusifolium var. listoniae , Perennial Flowers/Rock Garden, Stonecrop
This plant features good blue-green color and provides a strong texture due to its foliage.

Sedum sediforme has the same sensitivity as rupestres to wet seasons, but it is not as hardy. Best used in small groups or as an accent plant. This is a custom order plant.
