A nice little Sedum. September bloom in my garden.

One of the toughest Sedum I have ever seen. I found a piece that had broken off from the main plant that survived a week without water. I stuck the piece in the ground in full sun and it took off. Definitely recommend as a container and ground cover plant.

I have a patch of this gorgeous, slow-growing gray-blue groundcover in my zone 4 Vermont garden with a western exposure. The pink flowers in September are a welcome touch of color when just about everything else has faded.
