Sedum clavatum is an attractive succulent with stout, creeping stems ending in rosettes. It grows up to 10 cm in height. The rosettes are up to 5 cm in diameter. The leaves are fleshy, pale green or bluish-green, sometimes with red tips.

It has a compact inflorescence of many white star-shaped flowers that appear in mid to late spring to early summer. The stems lose their leaves as they elongate, but are often covered by younger stems, so the plant can look like a solid carpet of attractive rosettes.

When growing Sedums, keep in mind that these plants need very little attention or care. They will thrive in conditions where many other plants thrive, but will do just as well in less hospitable areas. They are ideal for that part of your garden that gets too much sun or too little water to grow anything else. A common name for Sedum is Stonecrop because many gardeners joke that only Stonecrops need less care and live longer.

Sedum is easy to plant. For the shorter varieties, it is usually enough to place the plant in the soil where you want it to grow for the plant to start growing there. They will root from wherever the stem touches the soil and take root. If you want to make even more sure that the plant will start there, you can add a very thin covering of soil over the plant.

You can break off one of the stems in the case of the taller varieties and push it into the soil where you want to grow it. The stem will root very easily and a new plant will be established in a season or two.
