Sedum selskianum


Sedum selskianum is one of the most often mislabeled sedums in the trade. Leaves are similar in appearance to many other kamtschaticum-like species in their early stages of growth. The distinguishing feature is soft hairs on all parts of this plant. New growth appears throughout spring, forming mounds of foliage in late summer. Yellow flowers appear in late summer and are popular with a wide range of pollinators. Red stems stand out against the lighter green foliage. Leaves turn pinkish in cold weather and drop relatively early in the season. Tiny basal rosettes are set for the winter months, however, these are not large enough to be noticeable under the previous year’s growth. An excellent accent plant for green roofs and walls.

Small quantities are regularly kept in stock. Contact the office to ask about availability and lead times.
