(Also sometimes called Hylotelephium ewersii) This well-behaved Stonecrop species is an excellent edging or rock garden plant, particularly for hot, dry sites. It forms a low, non-spreading tuft or mound of rounded, blue-green leaves. Rose-pink star flowers appear in late summer, clustered at the ends of each stem. Deciduous in winter, trim to the ground in late fall or early spring. Nice in a gravel scree, alpine trough or mixed container. A good candidate for any collection of fine alpine plants.
