Sedum glaucophyllum Clausen. Cliff Stonecrop. Phen: May-Jun; Jun-Jul. Hab: Rock outcrops, usually basic and/or sedimentary. Dist: Endemic to the Central and Southern Appalachians (extending into the Piedmont), known from MD, WV, VA, and NC (reports for GA are based on confusion with S. nevii).

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: This species is complex, with several ploidies and morphologies represented, some at least showing geographic integrity and perhaps worthy of taxonomic recognition. Material in sw. NC (south of the Asheville Basin) has been identified as polyploid and differs in many ways from more typical S. glaucophyllum, in some ways suggesting the similar and closely related S. nevii A. Gray (known from nearby TN and AL). Further study is needed of this group.

Synonymy: = C, F, FNA8, K1, K3, K4, Va, W, WV, Calie (1981), Clausen (1975); < Sedum nevii A.Gray – G, RAB, S, S13
