Dragon’s Blood Stonecrop
Sedum spurium ‘Summer Glory’

Print Plant

  

The creeping selections of Stonecrop are excellent groundcover plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a low carpet of small, rounded green leaves, spreading to form a thick patch. Clusters of bright-pink star flowers appear in summer. A fast grower, this is best kept away from slower alpine plants that it might smother. Also a good choice for tubs and mixed containers. Easy to propagate; simply break pieces off in early summer and stick them in the ground. Deciduous; trim stems and dead flower heads back in early spring. Shade tolerant.
