Some New Sedums for 2011

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

When you’re shopping for plants for the new gardening season, you’ll find many new succulents are available. Here are details on some exciting new sedums or stonecrops.


Sedum Winky

Like Pinky and Pinky Gray, this was also a seedling of Andrew’s Pinky. Reaching about eight inches in height, this has lovely pink blossom. When the new leaves first emerge, these are cream and pink. They later turn greenish-gray.


Sedum spectabile Pippin Purple

This new variety is hardy to zone four. This showy sedum or stonecrop has large, gray-green leaves that are plump and succulent. Unlike some of the other sedums, this has tall flower stalks that stand well above the foliage. The purplish-pink blooms open in very large, rounded heads similar to those seen in Autumn Joy Pippin Purple is a great choice for beds and borders as well as rock gardens. This can also be grown in containers.


Sedum Novem

A dwarf, upright plant, this is a little over a foot in height. Hardy to zone three, Novem has lush, deep bronzed purple leaves. The blossoms are a vivid pink. Use this lovely plant in beds and borders as well as troughs and containers.


Sedum Picolette

Around a foot tall, Picolette is an upright dwarf plant. Hardy to zone three, this has deep purple foliage. The leaves are quite shiny. The blossoms are light pink.


Sedum Sunkissed

Reaching about 1½ feet in height, Sunkissed is an upright hardy plant that can be grown to zone five. This has lovely greenish-gray leaves. This is named for the gorgeous, bright yellow blossoms that open all during the summer.


Sedum Lizard

Sold as an annual, this tender succulent is charming. A very dwarf, lush plant, it is only four inches tall. This blooms non-stop throughout the summer into the fall. Very fast growing and vigorous, Lizard has very tiny, succulent needle-like foliage. The leaves are grayish-green with a slightly reddish to purple cast. The leaf color can vary somewhat, depending on the temperature and light conditions.

Grow Lizard as an annual ground cover. Grow this in beds and borders. It also makes a great container plant, especially for hanging baskets.
