Sedum telephium ‘Cherry Truffle’

Autumn Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.486.480

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 autumn. This colourful selection produces multiple crowns of upright foliage in purple, green, black and grey turning a velvety, purple-black with the summer sun. Clusters of warm pink flowers appear in mid summer. Even the dried seed heads have good winter effect. Good cutflower, also attractive to butterflies. Part of the Candy™ series from Terra Nova Industries, Inc. USPP#24602: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
