Sedum Ewersii ‘Pink Mongolian Stonecrop’
A neat and well formed stonecrop. Sedum Ewersii looks like a dwarf Autumn Joy or Telephium – but with a spreading, mound forming habit. Succulent leaves with a light blue to green colour are sometimes tipped with hues of red in cooler weather. Clusters of bright pink to red, star shaped flowers are produced in abundance from late summer and well into the autumn. A valuable rock garden alpine providing a last burst of colour and food for pollinators when much else is starting to fade. Prefers full sun but will also tolerate part shade – with the compromise that blooming may be affected.
Excellent for dry sites and great performers in the rock garden in any well drained soil. Deadhead faded flowers regularly to prolong flowering and trim to the ground in late autumn. A deciduous but fully hardy perennial.
