Sedum kamtschaticum var. floriferum ‘Weihenstepharis Gold’

Gold flowered sedum

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.
