Hardy Carpetting Sedum Mixed Colours (12 Pack)
There are few plants easier to grow than Sedums - even the most novice gardener can get results.
This gorgeous collection of low-growing, reliable succulents make an ideal choice for rockery planting, containers and borders, forming a carpet of colour. Perfect for the current trend of green roofs.
This mix of 6 perennial sedums has lovely evergreen foliage in a mixture of colours and as ground-cover plants they will grow almost anywhere - even between cracks in the pavement - and are tolerant of dry conditions.
Through much of the year, the stems are short, semi-prostrate and densely clad in leaves. Then in the summer, the stems lengthen and grow more vertical, before producing a haze of pretty sprays of star-shaped flowers.
During the winter or in times of drought, when other plants are fading, these plants will colour up even more, with their leaves turning bronze-red.
Quickly covering bare patches in a border, stonecrops will spread to around 25-30cm and further, as each leaflet has the potential to make a new plant.
Supplied as a collection of 12 established plug plants in 6 varieties for potting up. 2 each of:
Sedum acre aureum - a low growing evergreen sedum, with tiny green succulent leaves. 8cm high (3in) x 24cm wide (2ft).
Sedum hakonense 'Chocolate Ball' - a low spreading stonecrop with a mound of chocolate-coloured needle-leaves that turn bright red in autumn. 20cm high (8in) x 30cm wide (1ft).
