(aka: S. palmeri ssp. emarginatum) This delightful little sedum has been a personal favorite since I first saw it hanging from a cliff in northern Mexico in 1996. The round blue-green spathula-shaped leaves comprise the rosettes, which in turn form a nice mound to 18" wide and only a few inches tall. Although a winter flowering species in the wild, we enjoy the flowers in February and March in our garden as winter makes its final exit. S. palmeri prefers a well drained site, but it will thrive in an amazing amount of open shade.
