Wild alpine succulent

Post by Littledork »

I see this variety around 12-13000ft on dry slopes in Colorado. I have been unable to identify it in any state data bases. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A stunted Sedum lanceolatum? Edited to change my mind from Rhodiola, the flowers are not anywhere near showing. That colour is normal for some Sedum lanceolatum buds.

looks likely to me. Here's a page that shows some that look similar but even redder:

This is the one. We have it even here in our Rockies.
