Sedum tricarpum is
a perennial herb inhabiting wet rocks or trunks in mountainous
regions, the stems, ranging 10-25cm in size, are tinged with red.
Leaves on lower portions are 2-3cm long, 5-10mm wide, the tips
rounded, fleshy, and in spoon-shaped and lanceolate shape. Leaves on
the stems are of alternate phyllotaxis, the tips somewhat pointed.
Many yellow flowers come in terminal cymes; the petals, 5 in number,
are linear-like lanceolate. Pistils are 3 (or rarely 4) in number,
6-8mm long, and stamens are shorter than the petals - which
characterize this species. Bloom time: June-August.
