This superstar is a super plant!
Sedum Superstar is a low maintenance plant that will completely surprise you and become the star of your late summer garden before you know it.
When we say low-maintenance, we really mean that it leans more toward no-maintenance. This sedum (also known as stonecrop) is a plant that is very happy to just ‘be’. It thrives in poor soil and hot, direct sun. Once it is well established, you’ll never have to bother with it again. Well, not true. At some point you will want to divide it to share with friends.
This pretty plant has dark blue-green leaves that borders on dark-turquoise. They are fleshy, like succulents, and have a smoky gray overlay. Later on, as the season progresses, rose-pink flowers with hot pink carpels completely cover the plant almost hiding the striking foliage completely. Even though it is compact, this is considered a tall groundcover. It grows well in big drifts. Try planting it with other fall bloomers like Asters, Black-eyed Susan’s and Mums. They look great in large containers, too, so buy a few to flank a doorway or make the patio pop.
