Sedum Acre ‘Elegans’
One of the smaller species of hardy stonecrop. Sedum Acre forms a tidy and low spreading carpet of compact, upright, evergreen stems to no more than 8cm. This cultivar is known as ‘Elegans’, the distinction being a tighter formation of growth with both lighter and deeper contrasting colour tones of green and yellow. Small clusters of yellow star shaped flowers take form from late spring and well into summer, leaving behind unusual seed pods. In colder months, the leaves compact against the stems amid colour changes, changing the appearance of the plant drastically.
Easy to grow and maintain. Makes a great companion for delicate plants. Ideal in a rockery situation or any poor, well drained soil in full sun. Fully hardy and also drought tolerant once established.
