Sedum telephium 'Purple Emperor' (Large Plant)

Stonecrop

Hardy Perennial

A particularly stylish Sedum with succulent burgundy-black foliage that adds a touch of drama to the front of borders. In late summer, Sedum telephium 'Purple Emperor' produces wide panicles of ruby-red flowers that persist well into autumn. The striking blooms are loved by butterflies and provide a useful source of late season nectar for pollinating insects. This superb hardy perennial holds an RHS AGM for its garden performance. An excellent choice for hot, sunny borders and exotic planting schemes. Height and spread: 45cm (18").

Grow sedum in a sunny position in fertile, well drained, non acidic soil that has been enriched with well rotted manure or garden compost.
When growing sedum, water regularly during particularly hot dry periods until the plants are fully established. Cut back the old stems and foliage of spreading stonecrop plants after flowering to maintain their shape. Sedum is drought tolerant once fully established. Caution: All parts are harmful if eaten.
