Sedums tend to be easy to grow, good looking plants that are attractive all season and ‘Thundercloud’ is no exception. It forms a compact mound of blue-green scalloped leaves early in the season and in late summer produces masses of tiny white flowers held in dense clusters above the foliage. Because the plants are shorter than many other sedums like the old favorite ‘Autumn Joy’ they don’t flop and may provide attractive seed heads into the fall and winter. Butterflies and bees love the flowers.
