In the Garden
This native succulent brings fun into any rock
garden! The intense silvery-white foliage forms
thick rosettes, and side branches send out new
rosettes to colonize. Stonecrop grows 3 to 4 in. tall
and 1 ft. wide.
Between 0 - 7500 feet
Plant Communities:
Northern Coastal Scrub, Douglas-Fir Forest, Yellow Pine
Forest, Red Fir Forest, Mixed Evergreen Forest, Chaparral
Habitat:
The star like flower spikes are bright orange-yellow Coastal cliffs and ledges, or in the gravelly soil of the foothills
and contrast the rosettes dramatically. Excellent in
rock gardens, and as a container plant.
A small amount of the foliage is edible and can
spice up any salad or stir-fry.
Succulents are best with ample drainage. Mass
these at a sunny slopped entry, also great as ground
cover.
The San Bruno Elfin Butterfly use stonecrop to lay
eggs.
