Sedum telephium ‘Rainbow Xenox’

Autumn Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.486.460

The border varieties of Stonecrop are dependable choices for the late summer and fall garden, offering both foliage interest and a colourful display of flowers. This selection has succulent greenish-purple foliage that forms a full, bushy mound. The numerous flower clusters appear in a rainbow of colours from light yellow to orange to pink and bronze, held on strong stems. Excellent for cutting. Leaving the spent flower clusters on the plant provides visiting birds with food and extended interest in the winter garden. In rich soils, plants may be pinched in June to prevent floppiness. USPP#21506: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
