Sedum album ‘Faro Form’


Swedish Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.485.630


The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent groundcover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This extremely short variety forms a flat carpet of tiny, rounded light-green leaves, turning shades of red to bronze during the summer and again in winter. Little white star flowers appear in summer. Suitable for growing between paving stones, tolerates light foot traffic. Easy to propagate; simply break pieces off and stick them in the ground. Evergreen. Discovered growing on a Swedish isle in the Baltic Sea.
