This breakthrough new groundcover type Sedum forms a low growing, compact clump of smoky blue-grey foliage topped with giant 6-8”, vibrant raspberry colored flowers.
The flower clusters are comparatively much larger than those of ‘Rosy Glow’ and ‘Sunset Cloud’. They completely cover the foliage from early August through September here in Michigan, making it one of the earliest of all fall blooming Sedum cultivars.
This Sedum has fabulous color impact even from quite a distance and it provides color in the landscape for over 7 weeks.
Low, spreading Sedums form a solid mat of foliage which is excellent for covering slopes or can be planted as a groundcover in sunny, dry areas. They are extremely drought tolerant and many are evergreen. These are terrific low-maintenance plants that always look their best.
Sedum SUNSPARKLER® Series--
This colorful new series of Sedum comes from the breeding work of Chris Hansen. After several years of hybridizing and evaluating in his West Michigan field trials, Chris has selected only the best, most unique cultivars for introduction in his new SUNSPARKLER® series.
His first three introductions are colorful groundcover types that were selected from over 4,000 seedlings. They all retain their attractive coloration from spring through fall and are free of the leaf scorch that can often plague Sedums. Their compact habit and unique foliage/flower combinations greatly broaden the range of groundcover type Sedums that are currently on the market. They can also be used in combination containers and green roof systems.
Like all Sedums, they thrive on neglect and show their best colors when grown dry and in full sun.
Group or mass for late color in beds, borders cottage gardens and rock gardens.
Prefers well drained, non-fertile soil. Do not over mulch.
