Coastal sedum (Sedum litoreum) often grows along the dry road edges close to the sea, where salt and sand have been blown in from the coast, rather than on the beaches themselves, as its name suggests. It is a succulent annual with yellow flowers, often found alongside Sedum rubrum. The plants are well suited to the Mediterranean climate, they take up water during the cool wet winters, store it in all parts of the plant allowing it to tolerate the hot dry summer, even in the most arid situations.

sedum from Latin sedeo - to sit or fix (as the plants appear fixed to rock

litoreum from Latin litore - beach
