Sedum spectabile 'Brilliant' (Stonecrop) Photo by F.D.Richards, SE Michigan, 9/2020 - Stonecrop, SEE-dum tuh-LEFF-ee-um, Mature size: 2x2’, rose pink, USDA Hardiness Zone 4, Michigan Bloom Month 8c, In Garden Bed C3 Y2 for 3.3 YEARS (Lowes). Planted in 2017.
Missouri Botanical Garden: Brilliant' features masses of tiny, star-like, carmine flowers in large, 3-6" across, flattened heads (cymes) atop stems of pale grayish-green, fleshy, succulent-like leaves growing in upright to slightly spreading clumps typically to 18" tall.
Green broccoli-like buds in mid-summer, which open into large mauve-pink flower heads, turning to rich rusty-red.
Late bloomer. Most of my stonecrops tend to splay and need support.
