Roseroot is the sole member of the crassulaceae native to Québec. The low-growing plant, which can reach 15 cm in height, possesses bluish foliage and yellow flowers that bloom over a four-week period in early summer. The little roseroot then produces highly decorative orangey seeds. This is an easy-to-raise drought-resistant and very hardy perennial (zone 1) that grows well in urban environments, especially on rooftops. Roseroot is edible, and has medicinal properties.
