Sedum dasyphyllum - Corsican Stonecrop, Blue Tears Sedum

Sedum dasyphyllum has tight densely clustered rosettes of blue gray leaves. The Corsican Stonecrop blooms with white flowers from late Summer into Fall. Our plants have stayed 2" tall and slowly spread mounding up taller against rocks or stepping stones. In a shaded garden Sedum dasyphyllum doesn't require much additional water. Overhead water on plants in the sun can burn the foliage. Sedum dasyphyllum turns more of a dusty white with red margins in full sun. And tends to stress in full sun in hotter garden locations without semi-regular water. Sedum dasyphyllum requires decent drainage and doesn't do well with foot traffic. The Corsican Stonecrop is Winter hardy to zone 5 maybe colder.
