Sedum cockerellii is a small plant with a basal rosette of wedge shaped leaves. The leaves on the flowering stem are flat to comma shaped, but not round as they are in Sedum stelliforme. The flowers themselves can be seen to have several completely separate pistils which develop into about five separate follicles. Sedum cockerellii is usually found in a group of several plants clinging to a rocky face.
