Sedum spurium ‘Album Superbum’

Description

Often referred to as “the white-flowering spurium”, Sedum spurium ‘Album Superbum’ features a good spreading habit, beautiful green foliage, and clusters of star-shaped white flowers. Like all spurium, leaves drop in autumn¬†but sets rosettes at the base of each stem that persists through the winter. Flowers bloom mid to late summer into autumn, providing great late-season interest.

This variety does not tolerate the summer heat and humidity as well as other cultivars, and may go into dormancy to re-emerge in fall. It will tolerate a good amount of shade, although this may affect flowering.
