Well-behaved, award-winner Sedum spathulifolium 'Purpureum' (Broadleaf Stonecrop) is a ground-hugging evergreen perennial forming an attractive carpet of fleshy, spoon-shaped, reddish-purple and silver leaves, which whorl around the tips, creating cute rosettes. Attractive to butterflies, clusters of bright yellow starry flowers appear atop short, thick stems in summer. Although hardy, this sedum does not overwinter reliably in regions with wet and freezing winters. A great choice for rock gardens, decorative containers. It makes a lovely groundcover, particularly in the Pacific Northwest where it thrives.
