Baby Tears Sedum

Baby Tears Sedum (Sedum album chloroticum) has teardrop-shaped succulent leaves that form a tight green carpet, turning red in autumn. White flower spikes top off Baby Tears in the summer. Sedum is great for rock garden paths, or spilling over banks and rock walls, but also quite useful in shady areas as well.  Sedum is also deer resistant and very drought tolerant.
