Cherry Splash Sedums erupt into lime coloured leaves in Spring and by mid-Summer colourful red, almost cherry coloured leaves and buds… and then striking cherry-rose coloured flowers appear like a ‘splash’ of paint on your garden!
This SedumShack Sedum is very similar to ‘Cherry Tart’ – a compact , strongly coloured Splash Sedum for your Garden. It’s a succulent ,herbaceous perennial up to 14cm in height, with compact, creeping and trailing stems bearing chunky, rounded, cherry red leaves and terminal clusters of starry, cherry coloured flowers smothering the plant below through to early autumn. At times the foliage is smothered by flowers….
SIZE: 35cm spread each year, retreating back each winter (as these herbaceous perennials do!)..reliable and a strong grower …a super addition to a rock garden, container, basket or front of border.
The Splash selections of Stonecrop are excellent edging or rock garden plants, particularly for hot dry sites with poor soil. This SedumShack introduction forms a low, non-spreading carpet of russet red leaves. Strong cherry starry flowers appear in late summer, clustered at the ends of each stem. Well-suited to growing in tubs or alpine trough gardens, walls or using as a small-area groundcover. Deciduous in winter, the stems should be trimmed back in early spring. Easy and well behaved….and fully frost hardy down to minus 20C so far
