Stonecrop

From the SunSparklerĀ® Series, Sedum 'Wildfire' was developed by plant breeder Chris Hansen and selected for its dazzling flower and foliage hues. The burgundy red foliage edged in pink smoulders with just a touch of green. Late summer brings masses of rose-pink starry flowers. It forms a compact and solid mat of foliage. Stonecrop provides beautiful low-care summer and fall colour.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Sedum prefers full sun with average to poor well-drained soil. Can be divided every 2-3 years in the spring. Stems pull off easily and will root readily for transplanting. Winter damaged foliage can be cut back in early spring for a flush of new growth.
