This is our only Sedum native to North America, though its range is usually stated to be south of Michigan. Some of our southernmost collections, however, are from ± natural forested slopes along rivers typical of its habitat immediately south of us, and might be native, as argued by Farwell (1930). Others are from more disturbed habitats, especially near cemeteries, and are clearly spread from cultivation. The first Michigan collection, from along a roadside in Kalamazoo Co. in 1897 was presumably an escape.
