October Daphne Stonecrop

Sedum sieboldii

A classic groundcover with thick, round, blue-green, scalloped foliage edged with a deep pink line. Summer brings bright pink flowers; cooler fall temperatures induce a full flush of pink on the foliage. A perfect choice for the rock garden, between stepping stones or in the crevices of dry walls. Attracts butterflies. Drought tolerant once established.
