Unlike most sedums, this somewhat cold-tender perennial favors partial shade and loamy soil, although it will accept full sun and sandy soil where summers are mild. The spreading groundcover has tiny leaves, and is known for its bright gold foliage. Its dense mat will grow up to 2-inches tall and creep about 12-inches wide. Star-like, yellow-green flowers appear in the summertime. Stonecrops like this one need relatively little attention.
