Who can tell me what this succulent ground cover is? It seems to be everywhere though I pull it up continuously. It spreads like a carpet. An electric lime green with these yellow star flowers. It doesn't seem to harm anything, but it's always there and spreads quickly. It will sprout from a leaf, stem or root with a trailing habit. I think it likes shaded, sheltered areas, but not deep shade - under a bush or along a wall, never out in the open.




Sedum Affin tricarpum?

26 May, 2019


Certainly a Sedum (as they used to be before the genus was split up and renamed). Leaves wrong for S. affin. It looks more like one of the American species. Name escapes me for the moment.

Yes, looks like a sedum. I think it’s quite lush an pretty Bathgate. It’d be nice on my rockery.

Hi Kate, yes it does have appeal...and wonder-lust.

Sorry about the typo. It had wanderlust.
