This Sedum grows gold and flame coloured ‘spruce-like’ leaves 15 to 20cm high, plus 10cm more sunshine yellow flowers each summer,
Spreads far and wide, rooting and branching as it rambles.
Sedum reflexum aka Spruce Stonecrop (=Sedum rupestre)
Its fantastic vigorous species of Stonecrop, excellent as a groundcover or ‘golden lawn substitute’ in hot, sunny areas. It forms a mat of gold and flame coloured leaves, arranged around the stems like spruce needles. Clusters of bright yellow star flowers appear in summer. A fast grower, this is best kept away from slower alpine plants that it might smother as it rambles over them.
Therefore its a great choice for tubs and mixed containers …transplant the sedum elsewhere when all else has withered and faded.
