A vigorous herbaceous succulent that grows to 40cm in the Stonecrop family (Crassulaceae). Individual star-shaped pink flowers are borne in flat cymes that make a wonderful show in early autumn.
Sedums have come to form an indispensible part of English garden design. When planted as shown here, against a house [for drainage], you do have other, less hardy, options in Karin’s Garden. However, they are so reliable and so trouble free that you would be looking a gift horse in the mouth not to include them here. The flowers of the variety “Brilliant” are much lighter and brighter than “Autumn Joy”.
