Sedum Anacampseros Evergreen Orpine

Sedum Anacampseros Evergreen OrpineThe Sedum Anacampseros grows spontaneously out of the crevices of the rocks in the South of France; flowers in our gardens in July and August; is a very hardy perennial, and in sheltered situations retains its leaves all the year.

The singular manner in which the leaves are attached to the flowering stem, deserves to be noticed.

As many of the succulent plants are tender, and require a greenhouse in the winter, cultivators of plants are apt indiscriminately to extend the same kind of care to the whole tribe, hence it is not uncommon to find this and many other similar hardy plants, nursed up in the greenhouse or stove, when they would thrive much better on a wall or piece of rock-work, for the decoration of which the Sedum Anacampseros plant in particular is admirably adapted.

Like most of the Sedum tribe it may readily be propagated by cuttings, or parting its roots in autumn.
