Little Blue Spanish Stonecrop
Sedum hispanicum var. minus ‘Purple Form’

  

Many varieties of stonecrop are excellent as ground covers, and all do well in dry, well-draining soil. This variety is a little charmer, as the tight, colourful foliage changes from blue-gray to deep blue as fall approaches, finally displaying purple hues in winter. This becomes a carpet, smothered in pink, starry flowers in late summer, completing the show. As with many sedums, avoid rich, moist soils or this one will do poorly. Nice along pathways, in containers, or spilling over rocks, where the attractive foliage can be best appreciated.
