Sedum ternatum, Woodland Stonecrop

This native of damp rock cliffs, damp woods, and steep river banks is a member of the Crassulaceae, or Orpine family. It's related to the many species of "Live Forever" used in landscaping. Photographed in a dripping wet rock canyon along Ross Run, a tributary of the Wabash River in central Indiana.
