October Daphne Stonecrop

//October Daphne Stonecrop

Often described as having the most beautiful foliage and form of all sedums, this plant looks great all summer long and then really comes into its own in fall. It is a low, spreading species that forms a rounded mound, sending out horizontal branches from the central crown. The 3/4″ round, blue-green leaves are borne in “threes” around the stems and each leaf is narrowly outlined in deep pink. During the hot summer months, this pink edge intensifies. Because of its thick, succulent leaves which can store water, sedum is drought tolerant. It will grow in average to poor soil as long as it has good drainage. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be lanky and open. Should be grown in full sun to light shade, and is cold hardy to Zone 3. Good for hanging baskets too.
