Plant Details

A very good, bright-white plant for a dry area. One of the best plants for adding white to the autumn border. Really striking among the reds, purples and oranges of the season.

Clumps of palest-green, fleshy leaves stand out in the border  from spring onward. In September and October each stem is topped with wide flat heads of bright white starry flowers.

If left standing, the dead flower heads add winter interest.

Drought tolerant, slug resistant and as tough as old boots.

Height: 30-40cm

Common name(s): Stonecrop

Now reclassified as Hylotelephium spectabile 'Iceberg' but we are slow to change! 

The name Sedum is from the Latin 'sedeo' (I sit), because they grow on walls. Stonecrop because they crop on walls. They like dry, sunny conditions and are fully hardy. Very attractive to bees and butterflies.

All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
