This 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.
This colorful 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 SUNSPARKLER® series.
Chris selects for colorful groundcover types from a pool of 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. They can also be used in combination containers and green roof systems.
