It associates well with other sedums and looks superb surrounded by pebbles or gravel in a container, rock garden or the cracks and crevices of walls. Though attractive in flower, Sedum brevifolium is at its very best in midwinter when its colourful evergreen foliage makes it stand out over other winter foliage plants.
