We’re talking seriously, big (dinner plate-sized) brilliant pink flower heads that mature to rust-red. Dense flower clusters of this Sedum top succulent upright jade-plant-like foliage of lighter green. A huge favorite of butterflies. Flower heads open in midsummer and stay through fall. To provide nice winter interest, let dried flowers heads remain.
Sedum are grown for their distinctive fleshy foliage. They are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes - upright and groundcovers. A reliable, hardy and easy to grow perennial. Star-shaped flowers are usually in clusters or sprays that often change color throughout their bloom time.
Sedum prefer full sun and average to poor well-drained soil. Can be divided in spring. No need to deadhead during the growing season. Clean up in early spring, as new growth will come from the ground, first appearing as little nuggets pushing up through the soil. Pinch back once during early summer if height control is desired.
