Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’
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.

Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ full sun  new plant

A recent Silver Medal winner at Boskoop’s European Plantarium Show, this Jose De Buck introduction struts a shorter, more manageable habit than its well-known parent, S.‘Purple Emperor’. Distinctive ovate leaves, bathed in opulent greenish eggplant shades, line the upstanding stocky dark stems, inspiring the cultivar name. At home in the border’s frontlines or in a glazed container, ‘Jose Aubergine’s compact stature creates a sumptuous foil for the flashy slabs of tiny bright pink blooms that lure bees as well as other garden visitors.

Size: 20" high x 16"–18" wide; hardy to zone 3.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
