WHAT: Sedums are a large genus of flowering plants that contains many succulent varieties. Sedum spurium Fuldaglut is known for its attractive brownish-red foliage that is in full color all year.
WHY: Fuldaglut is a mat-forming ground cover that is an excellent choice as a roof covering on green roofs, and in the front of the garden where a low growing colorful ground cover is desired.
Rose-red flowers form in July to August and are a magnet for bees and butterflies. It is native to Armenia and Iran.
SUN OR SHADE: Full sun is required although it will tolerate some shade.
SIZE: This sedum grows to 6 inches tall and 8 inches wide.
