Sedum or Stonecrop
Hardy clump forming perennials. They have hard leathery, wonderfully coloured foliage that can vary from greens, reds and purples. Also have fantastic broccoli like flowers, they are tight in bud and open to bright colours in late summer through to autumn.
They always look extra good when the frosts come as they get that extra bit of sparkle.
Rabbits do eat a little of the sedums but don't worry its not their favourite! On a bonus they do attract bees, hover flies and friendly insects.
Where To Grow Sedums
These are excellent winners for gravel / rockery borders due to their drought tolerance. They also look wel planted in larger troughs surrounded by some evergreens and airy grasses
How To grow Sedums
They are very easy to grow and like normal to alkaline soil.
Again like most plants they love the a little sun when they can get it.
Once established these are drough tolerant
Come winter we do suggest you trim them back but just leave a little bit of the stems with the foliage that way you know where they are and they regenerate from the base.
After a couple of years the sedums respond well to being divided in autumn or spring.
