Sedum sexangulare


Sedum sexangulare is one of the staple, go-to plants for North American green roofs. Incredibly tough, it is sun and drought tolerant, and will also do well in some shade. Its small leaves are arranged in rows of six, which is how it derives its name. Sedum sexangulare forms a green mat with yellow flowers in summer. It maintains some foliage in winter, turning orange to red, and eventually brownish-green. Its habit is such that it fills in rapidly and completely in most situations.  A highly adaptable plant.
