Sedum SunSparkler® Series 'Firecracker'
- Bright cherry-red foliage in a tidy mound
- Light pink flowers cover the plant in summer
- Improved habit stays neat & won't flop apart or sprawl too much
Sedum Sunsparkler® 'Fire Cracker' is an improved variety over 'Cherry Tart'. It has shiny, cherry-red, succulent foliage that darkens to burgundy with gray-blue tips in summer, and an excellent branching habit that forms a dense mound. In mid to late summer, pink flower clusters approximately 5" in size cover the plant for up to 4 weeks. Lots of color for the summer garden!
The SunSparkler Series of Sedums is a favorite of ours here at Romence Gardens. They are easy & durable and come in a variety of colors that mix & match well with each other, as well as other Sedums and succulents, or even most sun-loving garden plants. Check out these beauties and prepare to be delighted!
