A star of the red-leaved spuriums, this plant looks great in all seasons. It has all the features of our other green roof spuriums: exceptional drought tolerance, hardiness in heat and cold, dense foliage, vivid flowers, and winter rosettes. Any of the red spuriums can be called by the common name 'Dragon's Blood', but this name encompasses several distinct cultivars. 'Schorbuser Blut's foliage looks great year-round, and has a brighter, true red color than other cultivars. Pink flowers appear in mid- to late Summer, and dark red rosettes are set through the winter. Leaves turn greener near the stem in summer, but retain their bright red color around the edges. This plant will tolerate some shade, although flowering and leaf color may be affected. A highly recommended plant for red foliage!
