Stonecrop Family Crassulaceae


Stonecrops are an interesting set of flowers, not really woody nor fleshy but a cross between the two! Attractive star shaped flowers, some with five petals but not all. They get their name from their ability to thrive on the barest of soils on rocks and walls.  Some species are popular in gardens too.
