Sedum rupestri is commonly known by the name of six angles because of its characteristic leaves in six whorls. Native to Europe and Asia, the plant needs a sandy, moist or dry soil and a sunny site. 

Spreading sedums form a solid carpet of foliage which is excellent for covering slopes, walls, roadsides, etc. Or it can be planted as a ground cover in sunny, dry areas. Great plants that require little maintenance and always look good. 

Sedum is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Crassulaceae. The name Sedum comes from the Latin word meaning to soothe, because of its supposed healing properties.

The genus has been described as containing up to 600 diverse species of leafy succulents found throughout the northern hemisphere and varying greatly in height and size. The plants have leaves that store water, hence one of their common names.

Most Sedum are known for their colourful, fleshy, succulent foliage and yellow, pink or white flowers. Sedum foliage colour can be green, purple, blue, yellow or even variegated with multiple colours. In autumn, the leaves of the sedum can take on reddish or coppery tones.

These succulents flower even in poor soils. Flowering brings a decidedly horizontal element to the garden, as flat, long-lasting umbels of starry flowers emerge from the buds in broccoli-like clusters. Supported by sturdy, sturdy stems, the flowers mature in a range of colours, prolonging the visual pleasure well into winter. Flowering in August, September and October.

In the wild, most Sedum grow in shade, although some are adapted to full sun situations. Their xeric nature makes Sedum popular for use in rock gardens, roof gardens, wall gardens and living wreaths. However, the cultivars we grow and offer here are well adapted to our moist clay soil, making them a versatile plant.
