Orpine, the Common, or Or-pine-Stonrcrop, Sedum Tele-phium, L. an indigenous perennial plant, growing on pastures and in hedges; flowering in the month of August.

This luxuriant herb may be easily propagated, either by parting the roots; or by slips, or cuttings of the stalks, in summer; it thrives well in dry soils, being of succulent growth ; and spreads rapidly into tufted branches; when cultivated in gardens, on account of its variegated appearance.- A decoction of the leaves in milk, operates as a diuretic, and has occasionally been administered, with success, as a cure for the piles.—Cows, goats, sheep, and swine, eat this plant, but it is wholly refused by horses.
