Sedum cauticola ‘Lidakense’
Sedum cauticola 'Lidakense' is an excellent groundcover plant, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a flat, dense mat of blue-gray leaves tinged with purple on its edges. Clusters of bright pink flowers appear in late summer and last into fall. 'Lidakense' is well suited for the rock garden or as edging in a dry border, it is also a good choice for using in containers. Sedum 'Bertram Anderson' makes a good companion plant as does Eryngium amethystinum 'Sapphire Blue.'
