Sedum spurium ‘John Creech’
at Digging Dog

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.

Thanks to Dr. John Creech, the former director of the U.S. National Arboretum, this cute, yet durable, little Sedum found its way into our country from a Siberian Botanical Garden. A showy late blooming flourish of rose pink flowers festoons the small, round scalloped green leaves, which knit a tightset, low spreading, lush and succulent cover. Weed smothering, energetic and hardy, ‘John Creech’ is unfazed by light shade and is excellent for edging a pathway, creating a green roof and softening stonewalls or containers.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 3"–4" high x 6"–9" wide; hardy to zone 3.
