(Black Jack Stonecrop, Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)
Exciting and intense purple-black succulent foliage give the dark hybrid 'Black Jack' a unique place in the perennial garden. It is a hardy hybrid of Sedum telephium, a native of Europe that has been in cultivation for many centuries. It’s only the contemporary varieties with better form that are becoming garden perennials of great merit due to their late season flowering. As a succulent, this plant wants very well drained soil of moderate fertility. Beware of late summer overwatering when...

(Cloud Walker Showy Stonecrop, Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)
Lush, large leaved, and spectacular in bloom, this clumping sedum holds its upright vase shape better than most. Bred by Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon, ‘Thunder Cloud’s heritage is murky due to the long history of cross breeding hardy sedums. The plants develop mounds of upright stems bearing thick leathery leaves in deep green edged with red highlights. Foliage takes on more vivid hues in the fall. With gentle shaping they plants remain tidy, but if allowed to sprawl they may root where stems...
(Elsie's Gold Showy Stonecrop, Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)
Truly spectacular in every way, ‘Elsie’s Gold’ offers a near perfect perennial. Its form, texture and color rescues the late summer garden from doldrums. It was first discovered in New Zealand as a sport of popular Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ and therefore asks for similar conditions in the garden. This beauty bears deeply serrated foliage in cool silvery green with outstanding golden leaf margins that fade to cream by summer’s end. Mounds of upright stems are tidy and less prone to flop, offering...

(Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)
Spectacular in bloom, this clumping sedum becomes a mass of color to brighten the midsummer border. Bred by Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon, ‘Mr. Goodbud’s heritage is unclear due to the long history of cross breeding hardy sedums. The plants develop mounds of upright stems bearing thick leathery leaves in deep green edged with red highlights. With gentle shaping plants remain tidy, but if allowed to sprawl they may root where stems contact the ground.
The buds of ‘Mr. Goodbud’ form in very...
(Adolph's Sedum, Golden Sedum)
This lovely high colored tender succulent is a fine groundcover in frost free areas. It is mostly grown as a container plant for easy protection during the colder season. This plant is native to the Cape region of South Africa where the dry season is long and hot but tempered by the marine influence. The plants love sun on the coast, but may suffer inland and where extreme heat forces it to be grown in the shade. This plant is a rangy creeper, developing casual rosettes of football shaped yellow...
A diminutive, creeping perennial that turns fiery hues in summer, this alpine stonecrop from Greece and Bulgaria is an ideal choice for pots and troughs.
The low trailing stems of this hardy succulent bear dense tufts of tiny, fleshy, pale blue-green leaves that color deep red in mid to late summer. Plants spread to form small mats of foliage. Masses of starry, golden-yellow flowers appear in spring, with numerous seeds and self-sown seedlings often resulting.
This sedum thrives in full...
