Goldmoss Stonecrop

Sedum acre

Description:

The Stonecrop is a succulent perennial flowering herb, forming tufts or mat-like creeping masses. Leaves are fleshy, alternate, densely packed on a leaf-stem and with a rounded tip. Flowers are golden yellow and star-like, about 1cm in diameter.

Habitat:

Stonecrops thrives on rocky escarpments, walls and poor dry soils in mountainous regions. Here, on pastures on a hilly lowlands around lake Geneva (lac Leman) in between two mountain ranges, Jura and Alps.

Notes:

Goldmoss Stonecrop contains some very toxic alkaloids. However, there are some sources quoting that this plant was used as medicinal one long time ago - I don't know in what capacity.
