Buy Hylotelephium 'Lime Zinger' (SunSparkler Series) (PBR) stonecrop (syn Sedum): Zesty coloured groundcover and late flowers too

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    If you are looking for an easy to grow groundcover that will look good for months on end, then look no further. Each spring the succulent foliage emerges a zesty green with a fine bright red edge. This forms a carpet, which in late summer, is topped with sprays of pink flowers that the bees love. This is a great (and easy to grow) plant that will flourish in a sunny spot. It also is going to work well in patio pots.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Once established, sedums can have a tendency to flop leaving an open and unsightly centre, especially in fertile soil. One technique to help prevent this is the 'Chelsea chop'. During the last week of May (Chelsea Flower Show week), cut one in every three stems back to the ground. This will produce plants that are less lush and flower slightly later.

Bought this plant in a 9cm pot last spring, its now about 2 feet square and thriving in all it glory. I live in NE Scotland! We have a sub arctic climate up here so am delighted that my sedums thrive here. Having said that all my plants from Crocus have done very well here. Great plants

Good quality, decent sized healthy plants were delivered, which had the attractive colouration of the photo, but in a pot in full sun the colours faded quickly to almost plain green. I'll see what they look like this Spring after overwintering.

This plant was very pretty. Unfortunately - it got eaten by slugs and ants! I'm hoping that it will recover again for springtime!

Long flowering plants for your garden

When choosing plants for your garden you want some ‘core plants’, ones that will that offer weeks of flower, not just a few fleeting days. These stalwarts help balance out those ephemeral poppies, the plants with the tissue-paper petals that drop within a
