(syn: Sedum malacophyllum) If you like sedums and hens and chicks, then you'll love their cousin, Orostachys. The easy-to-grow 2" tall x 1' wide clumps of short, fleshy, green rosettes carpet the ground in a dry rock garden setting. In summer, the rosettes rise like an erupting volcano as they burst into flower. Orostachys malacophylla is closely allied to Orostachys aggregatus, and sunk into synonymy by many taxonomists. (In lay language, they think it's the same plant.) The plant we offer under this name has shorter stolons that are red instead of green as in Orostachys aggregatus. In habit, Orostachys malacophylla also makes a denser clump in the garden. We think you need one, regardless of the name.
