Sedum stelliforme S. Watson
(Huachuca Mountain Stonecrop)

Family: Crassulaceae

Status: Native


Sedum stelliforme is similar to Sedum cockerelli, with which it shares habitat. Both grow on rocks or rocky slopes in middle to upper elevations. Both usually have one flowering stem which is branched towards the apex. The leaves on the stem of Sedum stelliforme are rounder in cross-section (terete) rather than more flattened as in Sedum cockerelli.
