This little native succulent forms a tight cushion of tiny fleshy lance-shaped leaves. Small and compact, it's a perfect choice for a rock garden or container. In early summer it develops vivid yellow flower stalks that mature to deep red seed heads. Unlike wormleaf stonecrop, which tends to spread via bulbils, lance-leaf will stay put unless you choose to spread the seeds. 

 

Plant in well drained soil. Goes nicely with cushion plants such as cushion buckwheat, woolly groundsel, and cutleaf daisy.
