Sedum dasyphyllum or Corsican Stonecrop: A hardy ground cover species that makes a colorful outdoor accent throughout the seasons. Its tiny, glaucous leaves can vary from turquoise to silver and will blush lavender in full sun. It has adapted a wide variety of habitats throughout Europe and can present in a wide range of forms.
S. dasyphyllum forms a dense carpet and grows particularly well from rocky, scree slopes and volcanic tuff. It self propagates easily as fallen leaves and stem sections will readily re-root. This species has shallow roots and needs great drainage, but this makes it a great variety for green roofs, vertical plantings, and retaining walls. When grown in a well-draining pot, it will eventually cascade over the edge.
Despite its delicate look, S. dasyphyllum is frost hardy down to 0F (zone 7). It can tolerate extended droughts, but regular water in the summer will encourage growth. It is a summer bloomer, producing white, star-shaped flowers on short stalks that attract pollinators.
