I would like to add a dark red sedum to my borders - does anyone know a good one?
Have some pink ones that are doing well, so I think they like my conditions
I can't remember ever seeing a red. Purple Emperor adds a lovely deep colour with its leaves but still has pink flowers
That's the one I thought of nut. I think all of them have pinky flowers but that one has lovely dark stems.
Thanks both - will look it up. Do you know if all sedums come easily from cuttings? Ie can i get away with buying just one plant and then propagating enough for a clump myself?
Dead easy from Irishman cuttings in spring. Just sever a new shoot with a bit of root attached and pot into gritty compost. I have a couple of dark leaved forms, but as nut says, they have pink flowers.
Sedum "chocolate" has dark leaves and red flowers but its a bit lax. I have it propped between another sedum (autumn joy I think)and some dianthus. I'll take a photo later.
I bought Sedum Hot Stuff, deep pink and shorter, bought from Hayloft last year as small plants and this year they have come on great, having had others that are large and floppy, this one doesn't need any support at all. Tomorrow I'll post a photo (that's if it's not raining) if that's any help
This is Sedum chocolate between dianthus and Sedum, Autumn joy
Sedum Mr Goodbud. Green leaves but the heads colour up early.
