Sedum makinoi or Maruba mannengusa (Sedum makinoi) is a cold-tolerant, creeping, evergreen perennial herb (succulent) of the genus Sedum of the family Crassulaceae that is native to Japan and China.
It is a cold-resistant, creeping, evergreen perennial herb (succulent plant) of the genus Sedum makinoi in the family Bendulaceae. It grows wild in rocky crevices in mountainous areas from Honshu to Shikoku and Kyushu. The stems are reddish-brown and crawl on the ground, rooting out from the nodes and branching out, the tips of which are obliquely upturned. In summer, yellow star-shaped flowers bloom upward from the top of the stem in concentrated inflorescences. The flowers are followed by pouch flowers.
