Sedum rosea
(Map updated: March 2008)
 

Roseroot gets its name from the scent of its roots resembling that of roses. It is a rather rare arctic-alpine species growing on high mountains such as some of the Mournes, but also on Fair Head and formerly on the cliffs overlooking Lower Lough Erne, though now thought to be extinct at this site.

All names: Sedum rosea (L.) Scop.; Rhodalia rosea L.; Sedum rhodiola DC.
