Sedum cauticola

This low growing stonecrop is a double threat. Not only does it feature pink-rimmed powdery blue leaves that acquire a purplish-lavender hue in the colder months, but when it bursts into bloom in Summer it dazzles with bright pink, starry flowers! Hugging the ground at about 3” in height, this “sea of stones” features pretty rosettes of closely held ½” fleshy leaves in opposing pairs. Perfect for a dry or rock garden, it shines on its own or as a carpet under taller sun-loving perennials. A prolific bloomer, the flowers attract a variety of butterflies hunting for nectar. Tough as nails, it can thrive in poor soils, though it wants good drainage. Very drought tolerant once established. Great for use as an edging, along pathways, as a living roof or spilling over a retaining wall.
