Tough yet delightful, beloved by butterflies and bees, these succulent perennials flourish even in lean and mean soil. Asserting a decidedly horizontal element to the garden, long-lasting flat umbels of starry flowers emerge from buds in broccoli-like clusters. Supported by stout sturdy stems, the blooms mature through a range of colors, extending the visual delight well into winter. Asking only for good drainage along with an occasional sip of water, Sedums are durable, reliable and virtually maintenance free.
Sedum telephium ‘Red Cauli’ (P-1716)
A vibrant carousel of color and a neat compact visage earned this popular Sedum the RHS Garden Merit award in 2006 and a place in our border. Flashy cardinal-hued arching stems and notched blue-green succulent leaves with purple tinges elevate pale rosy buds and bright pink clustered flowers, which age to a dark ruby red.
Let ‘Red Cauli’ festoon a patio container or a pathway’s edge, accompanying other late blooming companions such as Salvia reptans West Texas Form and Calamagrostis foliosa.
Blooms July – October.
Size: 12" – 15" high x 18" wide.
