Description:

Sedum is an easy-to-grow perennial with succulent green leaves and dense clusters of rosy-pink, star-shaped flowers which bloom from late summer until frost (August-October).  With age the flower color changes to a burgundy-red, and the attractive dried flower heads can last well into the winter months.  Sedum is an excellent choice for dry,sunny areas of the yard.  It can be planted as a specimen or in masses.
