its low cushions of purple-edged blue-gray foliage. As a bonus, starry pink flowers appear in late summer and prolong the season as they slowly turn carmine.

Sedum, a large genus of fleshy-leaved plants is found in mountains throughout the Northern Hemisphere (a few of the 400 species live in the drier parts of South America). They prefer well-drained soil with a pH close to neutral (7.0) and can thrive with only a modest level of nutrients. Some Sedums spread quickly and may become pests. There are many fascinating and colorful forms that are invaluable for the rock garden; a few can be used to advantage in the perennial border.
