History:
This is a cultivar of Sedum spathulifolium, which is native to the Pacific Northwest coast of the U.S.; specifically to Northwest Oregon.
Lore:
The blooms and foliage are a food source for the brown elfin butterfly and others. In spite of being resistant to grazing by deer, this Sedum is considered to be edible, eaten raw or used as a unique addition to soups or stir-fry. Note: use caution, as high consumption may cause stomach upset.
