Sedum SunSparkler™ 'Cherry Tart'

Stonecrop

Part of the SunSparkler™ series of vibrant, drought-resistant groundcover sedum, 'Cherry Tart' is another winner for Chris Hansen's stunning series of drought-resistant, quick-spreading, ultra-colorful Sedum cultivars! 'Cherry Tart' features bold cherry-red foliage from spring until fall, and big rosy-pink flower clusters in late summer-early fall. 

'Cherry Tart' is just 6 inches high, but quickly fills in up to 18 inches wide. The dense foliage is small and rounded, with deep cherry-red tones that stand out with large deep pink blooms appearing in late summer attracting butterflies! 

Like all the SunSparklers™, 'Cherry Tart' stands up to cold as well as heat, and once established it doesn't mind poor soil fertility and long periods of drought. It's ideal for containers that don't get watered as often as you'd like, and there's no better solution for hard-to-plant banks, slopes, and dusty garden spots receiving full sunshine.
