Plant Features

Postman's Pride Sedum is named after a Belgian breeder who was actually a postman by profession and succeeded in crossing Sedum telephium 'Lynda et Rodney' and the award winning 'Purple Emperor' Sedum. The result is a stunning Stonecrop with purple foliage that produces masses of buds of the same color, which then open to pinky-purple tiny blossoms in large, attractive clumps. The seed head is a rich burgundy color and is a fall and winter food-source for colorful songbirds. It is also a host plant for the Phoebus Parnassian butterfly.
