Sedum palmeri has great evergreen rosettes of broad, rounded, blue-green foliage and very pretty clusters of yellow flowers in mid- to late summer.
At first I thought this was an Echeveria while visiting Heronswood Nursery in Washington many few years ago. It turned out to be Sedum palmeri with great evergreen rosettes of broad, rounded, blue-green foliage and very pretty clusters of yellow flowers in mid- to late summer. Great for tumbling 1-2 feet over a wall. Quite hardy in coastal BC in average garden soil, though sharp drainage is preferred. A collection of Dan Hinkley’s from the mountains of Mexico.
