Little High-Country Jewels




Yellow Stonecrop (Amerosedum lanceolatum) is a drought tolerant perennial which lives in the western half of North America at elevations from 5,000 ft. to 11,500 ft.

As the name implies (sedum” from the latin “sedo” meaning “to sit,”), the plant likes to live (“sit”) on rocks or gravely well-drained ground.

I came across these in northern Colorado – northwest of Boulder. Their flower buds had not yet opened up, giving them more of a succulent-like versus wildflower appearance.
