This is probably an upmarket version, but it reminds me of the basic stonecrop.This plant is rather dear to me as it saw me through a gardenless time when lecturing in a big city for a year. Living at the top of an old city house, part of a large block, I saw nothing but acres of flat roofs. And one day I noticed these roofs going yellow: stonecrop had taken a hold in the gravel between the many chimneys. It cheered me up no end and made me feel as if I had a garden after all. Funny how images bring back memories.
Hi Joco,I just noticed that after blooming the spent flowers turn an attractive orange-ish red making this already attractive ground cover even more endearing.
