Butterflies Zoom in on White Sedum
Sedum Star Dust, Sedum 'Star Dust', is a pale pink budded succulent sedum which produces large, flat, white flower-heads in late summer.
The large clear-white flower heads later develop a tinge of pink and persist until frost.
The sturdy thick grey green foliage matures to 24" tall with an equal spread.
Star Dust is a valuable late source of nectar for butterflies and bees too.
This sedum looks great planted in bold drifts towards the front of a sunny, well-drained border.
Seed heads also add some winter interest.
Choose an area where the plant will receive sun to partial shade. After the first killing frost, the stems should be cut back to an inch or two above soil line.
