Sedum kamtsch. var. flor. ‘Weihenstephaner Gold’

Description

A tough, reliable, dark green-leaved ground cover, with smaller foliage than the species and a somewhat tighter habit. In late summer, small star-shaped yellow flowers appear, gradually turning to orange as they mature. Showy red seed heads follow, creating a spectacular flowering display. Foliage turns reddish in late autumn before dropping, and small maroon-red rosettes are set for the winter. Unique enough to be planted in conjunction with the straight species to good effect. This variety is tolerant of light shade, but requires some sun during the day. This plant is similar to (and sometimes mistaken for) Sedum middendorfianum diffusum, a slightly taller, earlier bloomer.
