    Sedum means “plant that sits.”  “Live forever” is an ancient Greek name for sedums. The Roman Pliny claimed that sedum’s juice treated wounds.  In the 1500’s English herbalist Gerard called sedums “very full of life,” referring to succulent’s quality of being very easy to grow.  This species collected before 1671. It “grows naturally upon old walls in many parts of England.” Gardeners Dictionary, 1768.  In 1867 described as “growing, ever so luxuriantly upon roofs and walls (as well as) the rocks at Great Malvern…” Botany of Worcestershire. Landscape designer Andrew Jackson Downing recommended this for edging, 1868.
