Sedum 'Carl' Stone Crop
This English variety is distinguished from ‘Autumn Joy’ by its compact habit and large clusters of brilliant magenta pink flowers held on reddish stems from late summer into fall. Compared to the more muted pink colors of some older sedums, this one really packs a punch when it’s in bloom.
Rounded, slightly serrated, grey green leaves form a densely mounded, upright clump.
Tall, upright sedums form substantial clumps of foliage which can be substituted for shrubs in the landscape. Their stout, sturdy stems support the massive flower heads which develop in summer and burst into bloom in fall. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
