The genus Sedum has some amazing plants. There are tall ones, short ones, some that spread lots, some not to much. All are tolerant of the heat and drought once established. Then the plant breeders got involved and now we have even more plant habits , foliage types, colours and flower colours. Just pick your size and colour, and Sedum probably has it. It may not be hardy in this area, but many are.
'Vera Jameson' is one of the wonderful hybrids. An upright sedum with waxy, gray-green leaves with pinkish edges that turn deep burgundy during the Summer. Large clusters of pink flowers form in the autumn. Full sun.
Bloom time -August-September
