Stonecrop (Sedum lydium) has brilliant green, fleshy succulent leaves
that turn completely red in a drought and during the fall and winter.
Mossy Sedum’s puffy white blooms with a hint of pink are a nice
compliment. Sedum is great for rock garden paths, or spilling over banks
and rock walls, but also quite useful in shady areas as well. Sedum is
also deer resistant and very drought tolerant.
