Sedum telephium ‘Chocolate Drop’

Autumn Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.486.230

The border varieties of Stonecrop are a dependable choice for the late summer and fall garden, offering foliage interest earlier in the season, then a colourful display of flowers in the fall. This selection has an upright habit and forms a mound of lightly scalloped, dark chocolate-brown foliage, topped with soft-rose blooms in summer. Shorter than most tall forms, this unique variety is sure to be a winner in the rock garden or sunny border. Attractive to butterflies. Part of the Candy™Series introduced by Terra Nova Nurseries of Oregon. USPP#22866: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
