This succulent plant, pale stonecrop (Sedum sediforme) commonly grows on exposed rocky sites and is often found along the roadside. The pale yellow flowers, arranged in flat topped clusters, appear in early summer held on stems above the rosettes of bright green succulent leaves but under the harsh sun and heat, the leaves and stems turn red. They are attractive little plants and are often planted into pots to cheer up courtyards.
