Sedum glaucophyllum (Cliff Stonecrop) is a species of Sedum native to the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern United States from West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina.

It is a prostrate, mat-forming evergreen perennial plant forming patches up to 30-40 cm diameter. The leaves are glaucous green, succulent, rounded, 1-2 cm long and wide, arranged in a dense spiral on the stems. The flowers are white, 10-12 mm diameter, with five slender, pointed petals; they are produced in clusters on erect stems up to 10 cm tall, held above the foliage.
