Blue-green foliage turns purplish with cold weather. Bright purple stems contrast vividly with the 5-6" pink flower heads. Clumps serve as low "hedging", lending structure in the front border. Colorful choice for summer to fall, as well as winter interest. Grow in well-drained soil in full sun.
Sedums are propagated by division in fall or spring, or from cuttings in summer.
How to Grow
Like most succulent plants, sedum grow best in dry, poor soil and require full sun. The plants are exceptionally heat and drought tolerant; they also tolerate cold and humidity. Propagate plants by division in fall or spring, or take cuttings in summer. Sedums are rarely bothered by pests, or diseases and are virtually maintenance free.
Plant tall sedums in the middle of the border, as an edging, in a rock garden, or in masses. Cut the flowers for fresh and dry arrangements. Use low growing sedum as ground-cover in rock gardens or in hot dry places or slopes.
