Put the finishing touch on your landscape design with late-blooming Steel the Show Sedum (Sedum 'Steel the Show' PP# 31314). Install them for dense, low, compact mounds of silvery blue-green foliage and rich, rosy-pink flowers in the fall.

Steel the Show is a ground hugging perennial that thrives in tough spots. Thin, rocky and poor soil is a wonderful site for durable succulent "Stonecrop" to show off their gorgeous foliage and tiny flowers.

Planting and Application:

Their compact growth habit resists opening in the center of the crown. Add them to your groundcover Sedum collection to continue the flower power by several weeks in early fall.

  • Sedum is a designer secret for a lovely carpet of color that is super cold-hardy and drought-tolerant. This improved cultivar features small, silvery gray-green leaves and tens of thousands of free-flowering terminal compound flower cymes completely covering the foliage.
  • Sedum Steel the Show makes an elegant addition to any landscape. With its modern color styling, it suits garden styles from Zen to English.
  • Why work too hard in the yard? Rely on tough plants like Sedum to make your life easier!
  • Add them to patio pots, or tuck as edging along your sunny garden border. They'll happily scramble along the ground to soften Rock Gardens, too.
  • NatureHills.com features an extensive online collection of these special Groundcovers. Don't miss the incredible late-season flower inflorescences that help light up your autumn yard.

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Steel the Show is known as a Sedum that can tolerate heavy rain and wind. Just ensure you plant them in full sun and well-drained soil for best results.

  • Study the Plant Highlights for the mature spread of these small succulents. Create a mass planting using a zig-zagging planting pattern with staggered rows to cover your space.
  • Establish your new Steel the Show Sedum with a moderate schedule of water. Get expert watering tips from the NatureHills.com Horticulture Team.
  • Snip spent flower stalks as needed to further extend the season of bloom. Do any gentle cleanup of dried foliage in early spring with a very light raking or by hand to avoid damage.
