Hot Color for Hot Places!

Do you have one of those spots in your garden? You know the one we mean. The one where the sun beats down all day and the dirt is cracked and dry. Where the water rolls off the surface and evaporates before it can sink in. That spot where you'd love to grow flowers, but nothing really grows there?

We'd like to introduce you to Sunsparkler® Firecracker Sedum (Sedum 'Firecracker'). Not only can this bad boy take the heat, but it even thrives in it!

Sunsparkler's are fantastic sedum cultivars that were bred to branch beautifully and vigorously, even in drought conditions. A standout among this excellent class of plants, Sunsparkler Firecracker is covered in black-cherry red foliage from April through November. In mild winter areas the thick emerald and ruby 'leaves' shine all year. Summertime brings hot pink flowers held high on waving ruby-red stems, lasting for over a month on the plant! Butterflies flock to the flowers for the nectar and the color stays true all season, even in the hottest and most humid weather.

Don't let that hot spot stay bare and dusty this year! Buy some Sunsparkler® Firecracker Sedum from Nature Hills today to fill it and let it become your favorite garden spot!

  • Loves the heat
  • Evergreen in mild climates
  • Compact, perfect for containers
  • Butterfly magnet
