There are well over 500 varieties of sedum. Everything from large, blooming, showy sedum, to houseplants, and smaller trailing ground covers. Many of the common drought tolerant sedum are the smaller, more boutique variety, but this showy sedum can grow quite tall. This particular cultivar, sedum spectabile, will grow as a clumping perennial up to 2’ tall, and just as wide. The large, fleshy, succulent leaves are a rich green color with soft toothed edging. The bright pink flowers bloom in the summer. These dense clusters sit atop the green foliage like rising balloons. Even once the flowers have bloomed they leave behind attractive maroon seed pods in their place. It’s often difficult to create a drought tolerant friendly hedge, this is a plant that can help achieve that time honored look.
