Sedum takesimense

A gorgeous bi-color groundcover that’s also tough as nails – tolerant of heat, humidity, drought, and deer! Reaching 4-6” tall and spreading over time, it features showy, dark green leaves edged with pronounced, serrated, creamy yellow borders. New growth comes in creamy yellow with pink centers – so weird, in a cute way! In Summer, pink flower buds make way for yellow clusters of star-shaped .25” flowers held at the tips of the foliage stalks. Perfect for a dry garden bed, where it will add colorful pizzazz, it also spills nicely out of containers, and is lovely filling in cracks in a natural stone border. The foliage holds onto its rich colors all Summer long, then may blush pink in colder Winter temperatures before going dormant. Happy with any kind of soil as long as it’s well-drained. Attracts bees, butterflies, and hummers.
