  • Sedum alfredii is a plant found in an ancient Chinese mining region near Quzhou (Zhejiang Province) and has a strong ability to extract heavy metals from soil. S. alfredii was found to show heavy metal resistance and accumulation, as well as the ability to efficiently transport heavy metals from the root to the shoot. Its roots mainly produce malic acid, oxalic acid, and tartaric acid, presumably contributing to enhanced bioavailability of heavy metals [1][2].
