What: Sedum spurium “Fuldaglut” has small, scalloped bronze-red leaves which form a durable, evergreen, succulent, weed-smothering groundcover that is just 4 inches tall. Small rose-red flowers that rise to 6 inches create a bright layer of color over the lush carpet of foliage in fall.
Where: This perennial is a fine selection for spotting into rock walls or grouped with other graphic succulents. It’s best grown in well-drained or sandy soil, but will tolerate clay if drainage is adequate. The best flowering is in full sun, but it will tolerate light shade and still look good.
Size: Grows to 6 inches tall by 2 feet wide in 10 years.
Care: “Fuldaglut” is drought-tolerant once established. Cut to the ground in fall.
