Sedum spathulifolium is a useful drought-tolerant plant for any problem, hot, dry sunny spot, where it associates well with other sedums and looks superb surrounded by pebbles or gravel. 'Cape Blanco', which is also known as 'Cappa Blanca', has powder-blue and pewter foliage which, in mid-summer, is topped by small flattish heads of yellow flowers. Though attractive in flower, the plants are at their very best in midwinter when their colourful evergreen foliage and attractive shapes make them invaluable on the rock garden or in containers. Grow with craggy clumps of sempervivums. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

I just love the little chunky pretty leaves on this one. I bought it this spring so will have to wait to see how it flowers but I think it's really cute and adds a lot of interest to our small "garden" patio. Seems to be quite a tough little thing as well!
