Sedum ‘Bertram Anderson’


Outstanding Qualities

Sedum 'Bertram Anderson' is an excellent groundcover plant, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a flat, dense mound of rich purple leaves. Clusters of dusky-pink flowers appear in late summer and last into the fall. 'Bertram Anderson' is well suited for the rock garden or edging in a dry border, and is also a good choice for containers. It makes a good companion plant with Eryngium amethystinum 'Sapphire Blue.'

Culture Notes

This sedum is best grown in well-drained or sandy soil. The best flowering is in full sun, but it will tolerate light shade and still look good. Once established it is drought tolerant. Cut to the ground in fall.
