Grows spontaneously out of the crevices of the rocks in the South of France; flowers in our gardens in July and August; is a very hardy perennial, and in sheltered situations retains its leaves all the year.

The singular manner in which the leaves are attached to the flowering stem, deserves to be noticed.

Like most of the Sedum tribe it may readily be propagated by cuttings, or parting its roots in autumn.

Dodonæus' figure admirably represents its habit.
