A compact new dark foliage sedum that is perfectly suited to growing in containers. Relatively small leaves with scalloped edges are lovely shades of green and mauve in spring, then darken to deep burgundy as the season progresses. In late summer, 2-3 inch wide clusters of red velvet buds open to rose colored flowers.

Tall, upright sedums form substantial clumps of foliage which can be substituted for shrubs in the landscape. Their stout, sturdy stems support the massive flower heads which develop in summer and burst into bloom in fall. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
