A pot of gold for me and the bees.


A pot of gold for me and the bees.

This is so cheerful and flowers from early till late in the year and no worries about watering.

Thank you Yorkshire. It is a great pot filler, evergreen and long flowering and needing little attention. We often think of this as a wild flower or weed but I love it. The bees do too. I can see at least three there. I also love the common names especially 'Welcome home husband though never so drunk'

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sedum acre, commonly known as the Goldmoss Stonecrop, Goldmoss Sedum, Biting Stonecrop, Wallpepper, and the picturesque name Welcome home husband though never so drunk, is a perennial plant native to Europe, but also naturalised in North America. This plant grows as a creeping ground cover, often in dry sandy soil, but also in the cracks of masonry. It grows well in poor soils, sand, rock gardens, and rich garden soil, under a variety of light levels. However, it does not thrive in dense shade with limited water.

The leaves are simple, smooth-margined, and succulent. The flowers are yellow, Spring-blooming, in sprays held above the foliage. It spreads when allowed to do so, but is easily controlled, being shallow-rooted. It is used in hanging baskets and container gardens, as a trailing accent, in borders, or as groundcover.
