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.
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.
