Tantalizingly deep chocolate-brown to bronze glossy foliage forms upright shorter mounds. Darker foliaged plants add interest and texture when nestled among green foliage. Soft dusky rose-pink flowers highlight the lightly scalloped foliage in summer.

Stonecrop provides beautiful low-care summer and fall color. Let dried flower heads remain to provide nice winter interest. Sedum store water in their thick succulent leaves which enables them to be extremely drought tolerant. Sedum Chocolate Drop is an upright Sedum variety great for a hot, sunny site.
