Sedum album


A small, but extremely tough plant, Sedum album does it all. Not only heat resistant and drought tolerant, it is reliably hardy and provides interest year round. It is widely known as “Jelly Bean Sedum”, for the shape of its leaves. These leaves grow close together and form a dense carpet, which spreads to cover a good-sized area. Dainty, airy white flowers bloom in midsummer. Foliage persists throughout the winter months, turning red to bronze as temperatures cool. Be aware when planting that the amount of sun and water this plant receives also affects the color of the foliage. A continually successful plant on green roofs, Sedum album has become a staple plant in the industry.
