Sedum Thunderhead

In our opinion Sedum 'Thunderhead' is one of the most beautiful sedums ever introduced. It has huge, deep rose flower heads. It also has very stout, upright stems that hold the heavy flower heads upright. The handsome, grey-green foliage turns burgundy in the fall and is the perfect foil for the dramatic long lasting flowers.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Sedums are "plant and forget" perennials. Because of their ability to store water in their thick succulent leaves they are very drought tolerant. They do well in average well drained soil in full sun to light shade. Do not add extra organic material because this will make the plants open and floppy.
