Sedum 'Little Gem'

According to Ray Stephenson in his book Sedum: Cultivated Stonecrops, this interspecific cross between S. cremnophila and S. humifusum was introduced by Mr. & Mrs. Robert Grim of California. The dense, tightly clustered succulent leaves are almost hen-and-chick-like in their firm, pyramid-like rosettes. The leaves are green but turn ruddy in the sun. This tiny mounding plant is slow to grow. Although Sedum x 'Little Gem' survived 7 degrees F here last winter, it is known to be somewhat tender. If you have any doubts, please protect the plant during the cold. Occasionally the cherry red stems are visible through the tight arrangements of the leaves.
