Sedum telephium subsp. ruprechtii

Autumn Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.485.970

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 compact form has striking maroon foliage flushed with blue-grey. Clusters of creamy-yellow flowers are held above in late summer. Good in poor, dry soils. An unusual cut flower, and also attractive to butterflies. Short enough to be included in the rock garden.
