Creeping mat of succulent foliage, red-tinged dark green, with red flowers in summer. We also have the similar Sedum 'Tricolor', with pink/white/green foliage. Other S. spuriums growing in our garden are 'John Creech', a rugged low-growing variety with serrated green leaves, and 'Fuldaglut', described as an 'improved Dragon's Blood.

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