Sedum 'Pride and Joy' PP32530 CPBRAF (25) Bare Root Plants
ROCK 'N ROUND® Collection
Common Name: Stonecrop
'Pure Joy' has become a garden staple for the late summer/early fall garden. Now joining the light pink 'Pure Joy' and the white-flowering sport 'Bundle of Joy' comes the dark pink 'Pride and Joy'. This sport of 'Pure Joy' shares the same impeccable habit, serrated leaves, and bloom time as its parent, but with darker leaves and darker pink flowers.
This plant falls into a category of hardy, dome shaped Sedum hybrids. These plants typically bloom in early fall on round mushroom cap-type habits. Especially vivid when planted en masse. Through the year they showcase succulent foliage and are well adapted to low water and rock gardens. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
Sedum is one of the most popular perennials grown in American gardens because it is very easy to grow and hardy in most areas of the country. Because of its thick, succulent leaves which can store water, sedum is drought tolerant. It should be sited in average to poor soil that is well-drained. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be lanky and open. Most varieties should be grown in full sun to light shade. The lower growing types, however, will survive in partial shade.
This plant is not usually bothered by pests or diseases.
