This tiny, little Yellow Alpine Stonecrop is perfectly suited to grow among the rocks on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Its wax-coated leaves retain water while a gelatin-like sap is stored in the plant’s interior cells.These adaptations allow the plant to live at all levels of elevations.

I saw this plant at about 11,000 feet off of Trail Ridge Road at the beginning of the summer.

Pretty little wildflower, don’t you agree?
