Corsican stonecrop, Sedum dasyphyllum, is a low-growing ground cover plant suitable for hot, dry situations. It forms a carpet of tiny round, powdery blue-green leaves, from which clusters of star-shaped flowers appear in early summer. As winter approaches its leaves develop a purple hue. Ideal for growing between stepping stones, on green roofs or in the crevices of dry walls, it may also be used as a lawn substitute given the right hot, dry conditions.
