stonecrop (STOHN-krop) - n., any plant of the genus Sedum having small, succulent leaves and typically red, yellow, or white flowers, frequently growing on rocks and walls.


Especially the mosslike herb S. acre. There are around 500 species in the genus, depending on which reorganization of genera you follow, ranging from annuals to shrubs. So named back in Old English because S. acre is a crop (in the sense of a sprout) growing on stone.
