stonecrop Interesting Notes

Look for this native wildflower on your next hike as it is one of the first to flower in the spring. This tiny wildflower is found widespread throughout this area. It is typically found in large mats covering rocks, trees and mossy areas on the ground and near streams. Although it would prefer shady woodland soil, it will tolerate other conditions if not too dry. Look for it in areas of full sun to full shade along bluff bases and stony ledges. Sedum ternatum is a small, spreading, perennial wildflower. It grows 2” to 6” high and spreads by creeping stems which root at the nodes. Stems break away and die in the winter, leaving newly rooted plants separated from the mother plant. The leaves are rounded and succulent-like to 3/4" long which appear in whorls of three which give it the common name of Three- leaved or Whorled Sedum. Clusters of tiny white, star-like flowers with purplish stamens appear on erect stems above the foliage. Although it spreads slowly by creeping stems, any unwanted plants are easy to remove. - Wild Ones Lexington Chapter Newsletter, Volume 12: Issue 1
