Sedum album, White Stonecrop, is a low-growing groundcover with attractive ovate succulent foliage and white flowers. The shape and form of the foliage make this a very desirable Sedum and the flowers are a bonus. It is completely hardy and ideal for gravel gardens in amongst larger, more sculptural succulents or cascading down rocks or walls. It can very easily be used for a green roof project. This is a fabulous Sedum: versatile, hardy and attractive - it deserves to be grown more widely.
Sedum album is sometimes encountered in garden centres under the erroneous synonym, Sedum athoum. This is because they have just been imported straight from Dutch growers who don't care much about correct labels. Better to buy correctly labeled British-grown plants.
