Sedum spurium 'Chocolate Mound' - stonecropAPPEARANCE: Low-growing carpeting succulent, reddish-purple leaves form rosettes along the stems. Pink starry flowers in summer-autumn that attract beneficial pollinators.
USE IN: Rockeries, roof gardens, waterwise beds, coastal gardens. Squeezes into small spaces, spreads to provide groundcover in tough locations. Roots along the stems so if you want more of it, encourage it to lay on the soil; and if you don't, pull it up or mulch underneath with stone chips.
LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil in bright sunlight. Will grow in shade but leaf colour may not be as strong. Very happy in rocky sandy soils and exposed locations. Totally if the plant softens, droops, or wrinkles, especially in extended periods of heat.
