The Sedum reflexum plants are typically up to 10 cm high, with sprawling stems and stiff foliage resembling spruce branches, with softer tissue. The leaves are blue-gray to gray, and flowers are yellow. Like most other Sedum species, it has a prostrate, spreading habit. This sedum is prone to fasciation (cristate forms), which produces attractive cactus-like forms, with irregular curves. However it reverts easily, so all normal offshoots need be removed quickly to maintain the cristate form.
Sedum reflexum is a popular ornamental plant, grown in gardens, containers, and as houseplants. It is drought tolerant. There are named cultivars with variegated leaves.
