Outstanding German hybrid and very popular. Clump forming perennial with fleshy stems and leaves. Large flattened flowerheads of dusky pink ageing to coppery red. Strong growing and tolerant of poor soils.

Best grown in rather poor, dryish soil in full sun. Rich soils tend to promote lush grown which causes the clumps to spread open at flowering time.

Good for late colour in the borders.

Attractive to insects.

other notes:
A hybrid of Sedum spectabile X Sedum telephium.
