Sedum 'Purple Emperor'

Sedum 'Purple Emperor'

Synonym(s) Hylotelephium telephium subsp. telephium 'Purple Emperor'
Common name stonecrop
Family crassulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z3-7)
Flowers purple (late summer-fall)
Size 12-18"

Leaf color on this one is purpler than other upright sedums we grow (including 'Matrona'), but otherwise this plant is similar. It has never grown as vigorously as others, perhaps because it is in a shadier area of our garden.

Sedum 'Purple Emperor'

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
