Sedum spectabile 'Iceberg' (Hylotelephium)


Plant Information

Aspect: Full Sun
Aspect: Light/Partial Shade
Soil Type: Mainly dry
Soil Type: Most Types
Soil Type: Well-Drained
Colour: White

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 hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
