This stonecrop is a clean, compact, low-growing, spreading perennial. Features fleshy, succulent-like, triangular, scalloped, vigorous green leaves (to 1.5″ long) which form a loose, open mat of foliage about 4″ off the ground. Foliage turns varying shades of red in autumn and can be attractive. Clusters of star-shaped lemon-yellow flowers (to 1/2″ wide) appear in late spring on arching stems rising above the foliage to 6″ tall. Sedum is highly attractive to butterflies and insects, and several species can be found crowding over the flowers, making an additional attraction in the garden. Ellacombianum is a tough little plant and it is easy to grow, it loves a hot sunny location. A great addition to the flower garden!
