Nice sturdy upright sedum with very nicely colored foliage. It seems to begin blooming a bit earlier than some of my other sedum. The flowers are a brighter rose color than most of my other sedum. varieties. I like it a lot.

I just stumbled upon this relatively new cultivar at a local nursery that specializes in less common plant varieties, and while I can't yet vouch for its long-term characteristics, I can say right off that it's a beautiful sedum. One of the nicest things about it is the dark blue-green foliage, in contrast first to the pale, very conspicuous buds, and then later to the rich-coloured blooms. It also looks smashing next to sedums with lighter-coloured leaves. I will try to post some pictures before the snow flies here in Ottawa.
