It was truly a joy to watch this plant progress through the seasons here in our trials. In the spring, very small, sharply serrated leaves emerged a cool shade of blue green, a color reminiscent of the lovely Sedum sieboldii. They formed a perfectly rounded, low mound that was perfect for edging the front of the border.
As the plant aged through the season, the leaves expanded and turned lighter green, forming a short, semi-upright clump.
When late summer and early fall arrived, we understood exactly why the breeder had selected this plant for its flowers. A massive dome of bubblegum pink, star-shaped flowers completely covered the foliage followed by deeper pink seed heads later in fall.
This plant pairs perfectly with other fall bloomers like hardy garden mums, asters, and Black-Eyed Susans. Try a few in containers and at the front of the border.
This plant falls into a category of hardy, dome shaped Sedum hybrids. These plants typically bloom in early fall on round mushroom cap-type habits. Especially vivid when planted en masse. Through the year they showcase succulent foliage and are well adapted to low water and rock gardens. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
