Plant Profile: Two-Row Stonecrop (Sedum spurium ‘Fuldaglut’)

The small rose-red, star-shaped flowers of this low-growing sedum cover the plant in late summer but until then the thick succulent, maroon-tinged, leaves are attractive. In fall when the flowers have faded the leaves turn burgundy to enhance the autumn garden. Although only 3-6” high, the plant spreads as the creeping stems form roots at the nodes, and eventually forms a mat up to 18” wide. ‘Fuldaglut’ sedum tolerates dryness and is a good selection for a ground cover, container, or rock garden.
