Cultivar Notes - 'Cape Blanco'
Brilliant silvery leaves make this a standout groundcover in a rock garden or cascading over a wall. Clusters of tiny yellow flowers contrast nicely with the bright foliage. Leaves are even edible and can be used in soups or stir fry. Evergreen.
Genus Notes - Sedum
Derived from the Latin sedre, Sedum means "the thing which sits," alluding to its habit of establishing itself on rocks and walls with a highly efficient root system. Hence, common English names are "Stonecrop" and "Wall-pepper". As a succulent, its leaves and stems are water-storage organs, so that the plant can sustain itself through long periods of drought.

Easily grown in quick-draining soil and sunny spots, many Sedums have flowers that change color over a period of many weeks after opening and are attractive to butterflies. The great ornamental value of these plants, from the oval fleshy leaves to the flower cluster, begins early in the year and persists through the snows of winter.

Beloved by butterflies, these succulent perennials flourish in lean soils. Long lasting, flat umbels of starry flowers emerge from colorful bud clusters. Supported by sturdy stems, the blooms mature through a range of colors, with winter garden interest. Taller types usually bloom late summer into early fall, while the shorter ground cover types tend to bloom late spring into early summer.
