This is an old-fashioned perennial forming blue-green rosettes of succulent foliage throughout summer. Sedum is also drought tolerant because of its thick, succulent leaves which can store water. Towards mid-summer, flat tightly-packed heads of green buds form, opening later in the year to reveal masses of tiny bright, raspberry-red flowers. It is known for its compact habit and generous flowering. Sedum is highly attractive to butterflies and insects, and several species can be found crowding over the flowers, making an additional attraction in the autumn garden. ‘Brilliant’ is a tough little plant and it is easy to grow, it loves a hot sunny location. Much brighter than ‘Autumn Joy’, but a shorter bloom period. Plant Sedum ‘Brilliant’ with ornamental grasses for a beautiful fall combination. This award-winning ice plant looks great planted in bold drifts towards the front of a sunny, well-drained border. A great addition to the autumn flower garden!
