It is a native of North Africa, West Asia and Europe.
Vigorous, evergreen perennial with mat-forming growth habit. Stems are fleshy bearing terminal rosettes of stiff, spoon shaped, silvery or mid green leaves, to 3/4 inch long. Bright yellow flowers are star shaped 1/2 inch across, held on short stems, and borne in flat cymes. Sedums are excellent grown in the rock garden, containers between stepping stones or in wall niches.
