Stonecrop, Creeping - Chocolate Ball

Stonecrop, Creeping

Sedum hakonense
Variety Name:
Chocolate Ball

Perhaps if whirled in a blender, the mound of spruce-like foliage might be described as “chocolate brown,” but intact and up close is an interesting mixture of deep bronze, copper, burgundy, and blue-gray that reddens in the fall. From a distance it is the color of a dark old penny. Tiny yellow flowers in summer. Wonderful companion for a gold or chartreuse stonecrop.

Perennial succulents with interesting leaves create a textural statement. Fine Gardening called stonecrop the "most versatile, drought-tolerant, and easy-to-grow perennial," producing "carpets of bloom that look spectacular."
