Sedum globosum 'Old Man's Bones' (Stonecrop) is an outstanding low-growing sedum with uniquely rounded, chubby leaves held on short spreading stems. Evergreen succulent foliage often develops a bronze tint in summer and flushes shades of purple, pink, red, and bronze over the winter. Perfect for groundcover, rock gardens, edging pathways, and spilling over the edges of raised beds or containers. It blooms in summer with clusters of small, bright yellow, star-shaped flowers.

Sedum globosum 'Old Man's Bones' (Stonecrop) is a gardener’s favorite because of its uniquely shaped chubby leaves and attractive star-shaped yellow flowers in the summer. The stems root as they spread, thus creating a dense carpet of succulent foliage that makes an outstanding groundcover or specimen in the rock garden. Plant where you can see it up close easily. Once established, this is a nice xeric perennial. Also called Sedum divergens, or Stonecrop. Old Man’s Bones makes a great companion plant for planting under taller growing Stonecrops (Sedum), around Fame Flower (Phemeranthus), and ornamental Fescue Grass (Festuca).
