    Description:

    Strong sturdy stems of bluish green serrated foliage and purple-pink clusters of flowers make this sedum rival even shrubs of similar size; truly deserving of its 2006 RHS Award of Garden Merit

    Ornamental Features

    Mr. Goodbud Stonecrop has masses of beautiful clusters of fuchsia flowers at the ends of the stems from late summer to late fall, which emerge from distinctive purple flower buds, and which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive large succulent round leaves remain bluish-green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The dark red stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Mr. Goodbud Stonecrop is a dense herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other garden plants with finer foliage.

    This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Mr. Goodbud Stonecrop is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Mass Planting
    • Rock/Alpine Gardens
    • Border Edging
    • General Garden Use
    • Groundcover
    • Container Planting

    Planting & Growing

    Mr. Goodbud Stonecrop will grow to be about 14 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 16 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 12 inches apart. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 15 years.

    This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in poor soils, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.

    Mr. Goodbud Stonecrop is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. It is often used as a 'filler' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination, providing a mass of flowers and foliage against which the larger thriller plants stand out. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden. Be aware that in our climate, most plants cannot be expected to survive the winter if left in containers outdoors, and this plant is no exception. Contact our store for more information on how to protect it over the winter months.
