Sedum spurium ‘Tricolor’
variegated two-row stonecrop
Sedum spurium 'Tricolor' has small, scalloped 3-colored, green, creamy-white and pink leaves which form a durable, evergreen, succulent, weed-smothering groundcover that is just 4-inches tall. Small pink flowers which rise to 6-inches create a bright layer of color over the lush carpet of foliage in fall. It is a fine selection for spotting into rock walls and is also a great choice for modern style compositions in spare geometric containers or grouped with other graphic succulents. This sedum is perfect for troughs and alpine gardens.
