Sedum spurium ‘Raspberry Red’


This cultivar features green leaves for most of the spring and summer, which turn pink and red towards autumn. Bright clusters of light pink flowers with dark centers set off vibrant foliage during summer. Flowers attract butterflies, bees, and pollinators. As with all spuriums, foliage is dropped in late autumn. New light red rosettes are set on each stem over winter. This plant can tolerate some shade, however flowering and leaf color will be affected, and in shade the plant may lose foliage on all but the upper portion of the stems. A very good choice for pink to red tones in foliage.
