Sedum spathulifolium is a west cost native that I cluster plant throughout the garden. The cultivar that I have is 'Cape blanco', which was selected for its wonderful blue grey foliage. I love to tuck it in the nooks and crannies around the garden as well as next to the river rock walkways. There's something that I like about mixing it with other hardy succulents and locating it with decorative gravel and rocks that appeals to me. Maybe because its very textural creating a living tapestry. Even a low shallow pot filled with an assortment of sedums and sempervirens and accessorized with some attractive rocks can make a statement. Either way its a wonderful little plant that deserves a place in any garden. Plus its very easy to grow.
