Petrosedum rupestre 'Rice Creek'

This succulent groundcover is WINTER FIRE® sedum. Its foliage dramatically "burns" in the winter, transforming from a rustic summer green to a dark winter burgundy. It turns ember-like in the fall until the entire plant is dark burgundy for the coldest months of the winter. It's perfect for containers or to plant along pathways and around shrubs, as it can act as fire-retardant mulch. The soft, pointed, fleshy leaves return to rustic green in warm weather, revealing clusters of yellow flowers in July into August. Native to the mountains of Italy, this plant was discovered by the owner of Gardens of Rice Creek, who named it after their nursery.
