A collection of flora from the pacific wonderland.

Cascade Stonecrop (Sedum divergens)

Sourdough Ridge Trail, Mt. Rainier N.P. , WA, 8/2011.

Similar to Sedum Oreganum, which is taller and found in lower and coastal areas of the pacific northwest.  Another Sedum, Lanceolatum, has longer, lance-shaped leaves.  The latin name comes from the root, sedere, meaning “to sit.”
