Strawberries & Cream Sedum

Sedum x telephium 'Strawberries & Cream'

Durable purple-tinted green leaves on red stems provide the ideal backdrop for the pink buds that open to green-centered white flowers. The fleshy foliage forms dense clumps, perfect for borders, containers or planting en masse. After blooms have faded, the purple-brown seed heads remain for intriguing winter interest. Hardy herbaceous perennial.
