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.
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’.
Size: 16" – 18" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
