    This is a low growing sedum with decumbent, reddish-brown glabrous stems that carry elongating 3-inch wide rosettes of yellow-green-to-orange thick, pointed leaves. In late winter to spring, it blooms with somewhat fragrant white star-shaped flowers in a flat topped umbel. Sedum nussbaumerianum has a unique leaf color among sedums which is best with some sun and with little water.
