Sedum tetractinum 'Coral Reef' is a low-growing groundcover cultivar of Chinese Stonecrop with broad flat foliage that turns an attractive bronzy-red during the summer before reverting back to green during the cooler wetter winter months. It sends out runners that root at the nodes and quickly forms a low ground-hugging carpet of rosettes and has yellow star-shaped flowers during the growing season. Found on rocks and cliffs in gullys and near streams in southeast China growing between 500-1000m above sea level, it is usually evergreen in the UK although in extreme cold weather may become herbaceous. It tends to keep its winter foliage better than the similar Sedum spurium. One of the common names it as picked up is Fish Scale Sedum because of its flat interlacing spathulate to orbicular foliage.
