The SunSparkler® series is introducing a deeply color-saturated Sedum that will add depth and drama to your landscape! The dark, plum-purple-tinged foliage of Plum Dazzled Stonecrop (Sedum rupestre 'Plum Dazzled') has new growth that is deep-green with purple tinges, giving a subtle two-tone effect.

The small leaves are tightly clustered, waxy, and have slightly toothed margins, lending a unique texture to go along with that show-stopping color combination. This amazing perennial Sedum groundcover fills your landscape with color! Forming dense, compact clumps of midnight dark, plum-colored foliage, and brighter new growth, only growing to 8 inches high and up to 18 inches wide.

Dark, cherry-pink-colored flowers, born in clusters, bring some brightness to the twilight hues and are boosted by the dark backdrop of foliage. Pink blooms in summer last until fall frost, and your local pollinators won't be able to resist these blooms!

The seed heads dry on the plant in autumn, and you can either prune these off for a clean winter appearance or leave them for both winter interest that sculpts the snow, or food for songbirds! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 9!
