The hairy stonecrop is a species with a mainly Central European-sub-Atlantic distribution, represented in Italy by two subspecies: the nominal subspecies in the central-western Alps, and the subspecies glandulosum in Sardinia. The ecology is very different from that of other congeneric species: both subspecies grow in rather moist habitats such as in bogs, marshes and near springs, on siliceous substrates, with optimum in the montane belt. Its occurrence in the temporary ponds of Sardinia is very rare. The genus name is of uncertain etymology: it could derive from the Latin 'sedeo' (I sit down), due to the prostrate habit of many species, or from 'sedare' (to calm); the species name refers to the dense hairiness of the plant, the name of the subspecies to the presence of small glands on stems and leaves. Flowering time: July to August.



Italian name(s): Borracina villosa ghiandolosa (Italia), Sedo villoso ghiandoloso (Italia)
