Sedum sexangulare is as the name suggests; six sided. The foliage twists in a spiral up the tiny stems in a very pretty texture.

Tending towards quite vigorous growth, this one is best in an area competing with other larger Sedum varieties or xeric plants, or even on green roofs.

Although low growing, it can hold it's own against taller types and species.  This isn't to say that it is aggressive, just assertive in its growth. 

I also like the contrasting textures in a Sedum tapestry, or draping over the edges of a container.

Eventually one plant will root itself in an area of about 20cm (8-10") across to form a mat.
