Sedum spurium 'Elizabeth' is a vigorous and effective groundcover. New growth is cherry red in the spring and stays red along the edges of the foliage in the summer. Rosy pink flowers appear in mid- to late Summer. In the colder months, pink tones begin to appear in the foliage, and by mid-winter, dark magenta rosettes are set. Unlike other red-leaved cultivars, 'Elizabeth' is not prone to reverting to plain green. This plant also tolerates light shade, however flowering and leaf color may be affected. An excellent choice for red color on a green roof.
