Sedum Blue Pearl makes a marvellous year-round feature with its fleshy, blue/plum coloured foliage and come summer and autumn the display steps up a notch with a display of bright pink clusters of flowers held on strong vertical stems. Sedums are a fun, fantastic, tough and easy to grow succulent plant that come in a huge range of colours, textures and shapes. A great variety for a beginner gardener, to form a collection, or to encourage children to garden. Sedums make beautiful artistic displays when they are planted with a mixture of different species in contrasting colours. They can be planted just about anywhere from garden beds, rooftops, pots, baskets, even old boots! They are able to survive in quite tough conditions and poor soil but do preform their best when given some care.
