Blue and Grey Covers Hot and Dry
Sedum cauticola is one plant you will not want to miss out on! This Sedum only gets to be about 5 inches tall, and remains at a compact 12 inch spread. It does not spread aggressively. Instead, it remains a neat and more individual plant that works incredibly well as an edging plant, in a rock garden, or in any other hot and dry areas.
The foliage is a powdery blue with purplish undersides and purplish stems. Sedum cauticoa nestles itself into the edges of your landscape quietly from early spring where the small rounded leaves emerge, until later in September. Then, watch out for the amazing transformation of the most incredible display of raspberry colored flowers that completely cover the plant you can imagine! Sedum cauticola is a keeper.
You can't keep the bees or butterflies away from this xeriscape gem! The flowers fade as the age, and even when done, they seed heads remain an attribute until the snows cover them.
This little Sedum dies back to the same point each spring where it does it all over again year after year.
