Sedum ewersii var. homophyllum Rose Carpet

Rose Carpet Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.485.300

(='Rosenteppich') The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent edging or rock garden plants, particularly for hot dry sites with poor soil. This German introduction forms a low, non-spreading carpet of powdery, blue-green leaves. Deep pink starry flowers appear in late summer, clustered at the ends of each stem. Well-suited to growing in tubs or alpine trough gardens, walls or using as a small-area groundcover. Deciduous in winter, the stems should be trimmed back in early spring. Increase by dividing the plants in spring. Easy and well behaved.
