Possibly the most interesting plant in the garden! That is a bold statement but this selection is a color chameleon with summer flowers that range from peach to coral to cream atop stems bearing foliage that will transition from green to purple and ending in a deep burgundy hue. Add in its upright yet compact form and you have an easy to grow plant that you will not be able to take your eyes off!
Sedum is one of the most popular perennials grown in American gardens because it is very easy to grow and hardy in most areas of the country. Because of its thick, succulent leaves which can store water, sedum is drought tolerant. It should be sited in average to poor soil that is well-drained. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be lanky and open. Most varieties should be grown in full sun to light shade. The lower growing types, however, will survive in partial shade.
