Sedum album Coral Carpet Stonecrop


Sedum Album 'Coral Carpet'

Coral Carpet Stonecrop   DROUGHT-WISE

Sedum Coral Carpet has bright green succulent foliage at the start of spring. Then, this amazing Stonecrop turns a light shade of orange as the weather gets warmer and looks like coral from the ocean. Summer brings about another change as the succulent foliage turns bright red when it gets hot. As fall approaches and winter sets in, Sedum Coral Carpet puts on its best show and turns a deep, dark merlot color. Wispy, wiry, white flowers adorn red foliage in the summer. Sedum Coral Carpet is one of those Stonecrops everyone should have! Coral Carpet is an excellent plant for dry rock garden paths, drapes nicely over a wall or around covers the ground beautifully around shrubs. Sharp drainage is a must. Over watering will impair growth.

Gardening Tips from Fran

Sedum Coral Carpet is my favorite STEPABLE Creeping Perennial!! It changes color from green to red, then to coral, then to deep red and back to green. For those of us that like things always changing to keep from getting bored…this is your plant!
I have had it for years and years around my garden bench as a main focal point as I look out my kitchen window and simply adore it.
You can plant this as a straight lawn substitution or between stones or surrounding the rest of your garden plants. Any ways you use it, you will love it! I would even suggest it as a super cool and colorful cottage fairy garden grass subsitute!

**Many of our plants are listed as Not a Good Fit for Kid Traffic/Dog Traffic/Around Pools. These plants will work fine around these spots. However, please keep in mind that many people (and animals) have allergies to bees or fragrances. While the plants may work perfectly in the area that you have determined, blooms may need to be sacrificed, or a different plant may need to be determined in order for the area to be used free of concern.
