No other Sedum combines the colorful foliage display and groundcover type habit quite like ‘Lime Zinger’. Succulent apple green leaves are edged in cherry red and grow into a tight weed suppressing mat that is just 4” tall. The carpet of colorful foliage is topped with large clusters of soft pink flowers from late August through September here in Michigan.
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.
