Description

Sedum 'Sunkissed' is a most unusual, and highly sought-after sedum cultivar. Grey-green succulent leaves, which have slightly serrated edges, are held on short, uniform stems. In summer and autumn, flattened clusters of small, pale green buds open out to form heads of unique white and cream-yellow star-shaped flowers. If left, these flowers are followed by rusty red seed capsules. Sedum 'Sunkissed' will brighten any border. It will also add a touch of ‘calm’ to a hot or mixed border. The flowers will be a magnet for bees, bumble bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.

It’s an upright plant, yet compact at just 40-50cm or so high, making it ideal for the front of a bed or border. It will also make a fine specimen plant in a patio container.It may be grown in full sun or part shade.

As if all this was not enough, Hylotelephium telephium 'Sunkissed'ᴾᴮᴿ is highly tolerant of dry soils—and even drought—and its flowers may be cut for indoor decoration. It truly is a must-have plant!

Useful information

    • Soak the Sedum 'Sunkissed' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting

    • Plant your "Stonecrop" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed. Some varieties are a length of root which should be planted lengthways and shallowly (1-2cm deep).

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
