Sedum divergens, commonly known as Spreading Stonecrop, is a resilient and versatile succulent native to the western regions of North America, from Alaska down through British Columbia and into the western United States. This ground-covering sedum is characterized by its spreading habit and its ability to thrive in a variety of challenging environments, including rocky outcrops, mountainous regions, and forest clearings.

The plant features small, succulent, green leaves that are rounded and form dense mats or clusters. These leaves can turn a reddish hue in response to environmental stressors such as drought or cold temperatures, adding seasonal interest. Spreading Stonecrop is particularly noted for its adaptability to both alpine and lowland conditions, making it a valuable addition to rock gardens, green roofs, and alpine troughs.

In the summer, Sedum divergens produces bright yellow, star-shaped flowers that stand out against the green foliage. These blooms are not only visually appealing but also attract a variety of pollinators, including bees and butterflies, contributing to the ecological health of the garden.

One of the key advantages of Spreading Stonecrop is its ease of care. It prefers well-draining soil and can tolerate a range of conditions from full sun to partial shade. Like many sedums, it is drought-tolerant once established, requiring minimal watering. This makes it an excellent choice for gardeners looking for low-maintenance, water-wise planting options.

Sedum divergens is also known for its ability to stabilize soil and prevent erosion, thanks to its spreading roots and ground-covering growth habit. This characteristic, combined with its hardiness and low maintenance, makes it an ideal plant for challenging landscapes and restoration projects.

Generally considered non-toxic, Spreading Stonecrop is safe to grow in gardens frequented by pets and children. Its robust nature, coupled with its environmental benefits and ornamental value, makes Sedum divergens a popular choice for a wide range of gardening and landscaping projects.
