Dense clusters of blood-red flowers contrast dramatically against deep-purple, almost black foliage, to make a big statement in the garden. Unlike many sedum, this one is a bit shorter and much sturdier. It’s perfect for an a water wise area, rock garden, or container. Succulent foliage will die back to the ground in areas experiencing a colder winter, but will re-emerge again in the spring.
Easily grown in lean, very well-drained soil; benefits from a gravel mulch. Water regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Avoid excessive winter moisture. Fertilize in spring. Clip spent flowers to promote continued bloom throughout the fall. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge.
