Bronze Carpet Stonecrop

Sedum spurium 'Bronze Carpet'

This beautiful trailing succulent forms a lush, ground-hugging mat of bronze-red foliage, yet needs little water once established. Dainty pink flower stalks occasionally rise above the foliage. Useful in borders, rock gardens, and containers, providing contrast to green or gray-leaved plants. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
