Plant Type: Perennials

This upright variety sports flat clusters of deep rose-pink flowers. The foliage is a smooth gray-green and it looks great all season long. 'Brilliant' is a popular variety because it is beautiful, easy to grow, and drought tolerant.
Tall, upright sedums form substantial clumps of foliage which can be substituted for shrubs in the landscape. Their stout, sturdy stems support the massive flower heads which develop in summer and burst into bloom in fall. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers well-drained soil, but does surprisingly well in heavy clay. Drought and heat tolerant, particularly once established.
