This Sedum has an upright habit of dark black-purple, semi-glossy succulent leaves. Small clusters of mauve-pink flowers sizzle atop from late summer to fall like glowing embers late in the season, the perfect accent color to the darkly colored foliage. With a narrow base and a vase-like habit, this perennial combines well with shorter companions in a limited space.
If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
Stonecrop provides beautiful low-care summer and fall color. Let dried flower heads remain to provide nice winter interest and provide food for the birds. Sedum store water in their thick succulent leaves which enables them to be extremely drought tolerant-- great for a hot, sunny site.
