Stonecrop 'Variegatum'

Sedum kamtschaticum var. kamtschaticum 'Variegatum' | Also known as: Variegated orange stonecrop 'Variegatum' | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Sedum kamtschaticum var. kamtschaticum is a small semi-evergreen perennial that is ideal for covering those barren areas in your garden, like rockeries. But unlike many others, this particular species features more open foliage, not tightly packed rosettes, and grows in clumps rather than a mat. Its foliage still comprises a myriad of tiny, succulent leaves, but its colour is a cream-edged pale green sometimes flushed with pink. The most popular cultivar is Variegatum , commonly known as Orange Stonecrop, whose flower is an orangey-yellow, star-shaped blossom. It thrives in moderately fertile, well-drained soil, and loves full sun. Though hardy, keep it sheltered from harsh winds. Pruning after flowering helps maintain its shape.
