Sedum spectabile 'Crystal Pink'
Stonecrop - 3 litres
Sedum 'Crystal Pink' is an excellent compact new Sedum from America, with large heads of silvery ice-pink flowers which tone nicely with its grey-green foliage. Opening over several weeks in late summer and early autumn, they combine well with blue-flowered shrubs such as Caryopteris, Ceratostigma and Perovskia and are loved by bees and butterflies. 'Crystal Pink' also has the advantage that it doesn't ‚¬š¬œfall apart‚¬š¬ like some of the older varieties. Ideal for the front of a sunny herbaceous or mixed border.
Height and spread around 40cm (18in). Thrives in any well-drained, not too rich soil, in sun. Drought tolerant once established. Cut back to new knobs of growth in spring. Divide every three or four years to maintain vigour and compactness.
Bee and butterfly friendly.
