Photo of Sedum clavatum (Tiscalatengo Gorge Sedum)

Sedum clavatum - A very blue succulent ground cover with a soft rubbery texture, Sedum clavatum grows as a glaucous blue-green succulent leaf rosette on elongating stems. The leaves are up to an inch long and the compact rosettes are up to 2 inches across. Some stems lose their leaves as they elongate, but those are often covered by younger stems so Sedum clavatum can look like a solid mat of attractive succulent gray-colored rosettes. Although it thrives in sun to partial shade, whenever the plant is under sun or cold stress, its leaves blush pink. It blooms late April and May. The short inflorescence emerges from the side of the stem a little below the growing tip, arching upward and not overtopping the rosettes by much. It has chubby bracts on the lower portion, looking much like miniature versions of the leaves, and ends in a tight cluster of small star-shaped white flowers surrounded by pink-tipped sepals. This plant makes a very nice small-scale ground cover in xeriscape and rock gardens provided the soil is well-draining. It makes a stately, elegant display in hanging baskets and draping over walls and tall containers. Family: Crassulaceae
