Sedum spectabile Indian Chief

<i>Sedum spectabile</i> ‘Indian Chief’

Sedum

Stonecrop

Tough yet delightful, beloved by butterflies and bees, these succulent perennials flourish even in lean and mean soils. The blooms assert a decidedly horizontal element to the garden as long lasting, flat umbels of starry flowers emerge from buds in broccolilike clusters. Supported by stout, sturdy stems, the blooms mature through a range of colors, extending the visual delight well into winter.

Asking only for good drainage along with an occasional sip of water, Sedums are durable, reliable and almost maintenance-free.

‘Indian Chief’ commands our attention when its tranquil, pale green leaves and thick stems shoulder fiery red slabs of concentrated flowers. As the garden begins to wane, the hot-blooded blooms develop rusty chestnut hues and impart a vivid intensity to companions like Molinia ‘Bergfreund’ or Rudbeckia ‘Swiss Gold’.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
