Stonecrop (Sedum acre) is an evergreen succulent perennial from the crassulaceae plant family. The plant is native to Europe, Northern Africa and Western Asia where it is primarily found in rock crevices, ravine edges and scrubby areas. It produces small, terminal clusters of tiny, star-shaped, five-petaled yellow flowers which bloom throughout the summer months. All parts of the stonecrop plant contain toxic piperidine alkaloids.
