Tiniest of tinies, this is it. Sedum album ‘Faro Form’ is indeed the very smallest of the entire specialty Stonecrop clan.

Almost in bloom in June; Sedum album 'Faro Form' in its glory

The fact that this plant was originally found in the Faro Isles should tell you something about it's hardiness, and also explains why it's so diminutive and tiny.  Harsh conditions tend to dwarf plants that in less challenging climates tend to be a lot bigger.

Don't let its small size and dainty appearance fool you - this is one tough little plant.

I would grow this in containers like a miniature trough or hypertufa planter, or real tufa rock if I can get it.

Comparison of Sedum album; Faro Form is the center one

It would also be great in a child’s boot as a really different container, or as a ground cover in a miniature landscape.

Easy to grow, yet never invasive, this little gem is an all round great plant.

To get an idea of it's size, compare the sample in the picture with the regular sized Sedum album, which looks gigantic!

In case you can't tell, Sedum album 'Faro Form' is the one in the center.
