Common name: Lance-leaved stonecrop

Family: Crassulaceae

Information: Found in dry to moist sites that are open and rocky. Found in all zones from low to subalpine elevations, but not the alpine zone (Klinkenberg 2014). The red leaves and stem are an adaptation to high solar exposure (Pojar & MacKinnon 2014).
