We have long valued this iron-tough evergreen groundcover for both sunny and shady spots in the dry garden. This Asian native makes a nice non-weedy mat unlike its cousin, the dreaded Sedum sarmentosum. Each 1' long stem is adorned with 1" long and narrow leaves of green with contrasting white edges. Interestingly, it rarely if ever produces flowers, which would be in short panicles of yellow. In shade, the new growth often emerges upright and only lays down after it matures or is trampled into submission by the garden cat. Sedum lineare 'Variegatum' is a delightful garden plant or, in more northerly climates, equally as valuable in containers or hanging baskets.
