Ground-covering stonecrops are alpine perennials which are available in so many species and varieties that anyone can find his favourite. They are cultivated for the spreading, low habit, and offer a wide range of leaf shapes and colours, as well as attractive flowers. Many of them are evergreen, others are deciduous.

Red Sparkle is a cliff stonecrop of neat habit. In spring emerge small, elliptic leaves which later change to broadly oval to almost rounded. They are pale green with dusky red hues. From midsummer are formed wide, flat panicles of dark purple pink flower buds which open into small, star-shaped, coral pink flowers in late August. They provide excellent food for bees which are grateful for any flowers late in the season.

It makes dense and compact cushions, and looks great among rocks, or surrounded by white or light grey gravel in an alpine border. It is suitable for troughs and other outdoor pots. In early spring remove all stems from previous year.

Sedum is an easy to grow, clump-forming perennial. It can take almost any soil but thrives in well-drained, slightly alkaline, sandy loam in full sun or part shade. When established it survives temporary flooding as well as drought. However, when planting make sure the soil does not manifest either extreme. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
