Sedum takesimensis 'Phedimus'

Stonecrop

Sedum 'Phedimus' is remarkably similar in appearance to Sedum kamtschaticum, having nearly identical foliage, flower color (yellow), and drought tolerance. However, Sedum 'Phedimus' holds its leaves much later into the winter season, dropping them very late, and new leaves emerge much earlier than Sedum kamtschaticum. Green basal rosettes persist throughout the winter months. In mild winters or in protected spots the plant may retain its foliage nearly until spring. This species has a dense mounding form that fills in quickly. Will tolerate some shade.
