Sedum floriferum 'Weihenstephaner Gold'

Stonecrop

'Weihenstephaner Gold' Sedum is among the most popular groundcover sedums with its covering of tiny canary yellow star-shaped flower clusters in late spring.

‘Weihenstephaner Gold’ is a low-growing stonecrop that spreads by trailing stems to form an attractive ground cover. Flowers appear on reddish stems rising above the thick, triangular, succulent green leaves sharply toothed near the ends. The leaves turn purple in fall and into winter. The clusters of star-shaped, yellow-tinted, bronze-orange flowers are very attractive to butterflies and bees. An excellent selection for difficult sites such as banks and rocky areas.
