Sedum hakonense ‘Chocolate Ball’


Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.486.310


This well-behaved Stonecrop species is an excellent edging or rock garden plant, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This unique variety forms a low spreading mound of milk-chocolate, succulent, needle-like leaves that change to dazzling red with the onset of cooler temperatures in fall. Yellow flowers appear in summer and continue into early fall. Gorgeous year round. Reliable if provided with adequate drainage. Also well-suited for growing in tubs and alpine trough gardens. A good candidate for any collection of fine alpine plants.
