Description

Broad-leaved stonecrop – sedum spathulifolium

The broadleaf stonecrop is a small, succulent herb that grows up to 20cm tall and can be found in rocky habitats along the coast and the inland mountains. It is a hardy plant that is drought tolerant and can grow in full sun. The broadleaf stonecrop can be identified by its sage-green to reddish leaves that broaden from the base to the tip. In May to July, bright yellow starry flowers bloom off of the stiff stalks and stand 10 to 15cm above the leaves. The broadleaf stonecrop is easy to take care of and provide nice groundcover.

The First Nations peoples would use the broadleaf stonecrop for the treatment of cross babies and constipation. Other uses include making a poultice to treat wounds and stop bleeding.
