Sedum ‘Carl’
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 ‘Carl’ full sun  new plant

Celebrated for a stout stature and tightset domed blooms, this English cultivar’s large radiant rosy pink heads galvanize butterflies, bees and plant enthusiasts with late season color and nectar galore. A sturdy swell of thick compact magenta-suffused stalks plus fleshy greenish-gray leaves anchors the long lasting floral display. Exhibiting a trim no-coddle disposition, ‘Carl’ makes a fabulous cut flower, fresh or dried, and stand-out presentation in a favored pot, the rockery or a mixed border, especially when sprinkled alongside other toughies such as Eragrostis spectabilis or Eryngium ‘Big Blue’.

Blooms August–October

Size: 16"–18" high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
