Sedum Chocolate Mound is a popular choice for its rich, dark foliage and low-growing habit. This perennial succulent forms dense, compact mounds of small, succulent leaves with a deep chocolate brown colour, providing a striking contrast in the garden. In late spring to early summer, it produces clusters of star-shaped pink or red flowers that attract pollinators. This variety is drought-tolerant and thrives in well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Sedum Chocolate Mound is well-suited for rock gardens, borders, containers, or as groundcover, adding a touch of unique colour and texture to any landscape. Grows to approx. 10cm H x 60cm W.
