Notes: Purchased Spring 2021 for a spare pot in the succulent potagerie. Thought this was a miniature version akin to the purple spoon-leaved stonecrop but it is more like the ‘Ice Plant’ succulent hence the Hylotelephium alternate classification. However since it originates in Japan where it grows along cliffs there, it is a most apt purchase for the new garden.
