Upright Sedum

Image of Upright Sedum

Sedum have thick succulent leaves that are gorgeous all season with clusters of flowers that emerge in late summer or fall. They prefer relatively dry locations and are one of the best for heat tolerance. Sedum are available in many heights, from 6 inches to 3 feet, so there is a variety for almost any garden position. The multitude of foliage color options with thick fleshy leaves makes Sedum an easy choice to compliment neighboring plants. Plant a few specimens by the patio to attract late season butterflies.
