The Stonecrop plant is a succulent sedum. Stonecrop sedums are a large family of plants and can include low-growing mat, creeping, and tall varieties, but they all have a rosette of flowers and thick succulent leaves.

This is a perennial plant that attracts bees and butterflies and is easy to grow and care for but they do need well-drained soil for their shallow root system in a sunny location.
