Plant Type: Perennials
The alpine selections of Stonecrop are excellent edging or rock garden plants, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a medium-height, non-spreading clump of powdery, mahogany-purple leaves. Dusky-pink starry flowers appear in late summer, clustered at the ends of each stem. Also well-suited to growing in tubs or alpine trough gardens. Deciduous in winter, the stems should be trimmed back in early spring. This selection seems to resent wet feet, so care should be taken to provide a very well-drained site.
