- Stonecrop White ( Sedum album )
- White stonecrop can be found scrambling in the dry grasses on the sides of
dune hollows. Its stalks of abundant spiraling fleshy bright green leaves are
able to retain water and enable the plant to survive in dry conditions.
Flowering stems rise to a height of 15-25 cm. They have fewer leaves and these have a reddish tinge and are arranged alternately on the stem. Flowers are in a many-branched cyme.
The five white flower petals are spread out in a star shape and the long prominent stamens are red-tipped. The five carpels form the fruit capsules, which split open when dry to release the seeds.
