An heirloom species native to the Mediterranean, this robust yet compact selection of turquoise-blue sedum survives with virtually no care in northern Colorado. Creamy-yellow flowers rise above succulent blue mounds in mid-summer, creating a sculptural accent for xeric gardens. Attracts bees, is virtually deer-resistant, is suitable for green roofs, and evergreen, too! Pioneered regionally by Lauren & Scott Ogden and Kelly Grummons. Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Cut back finished flower stalks in late summer to refresh its appearance for autumn. Any broken foliage stems can be stuck directly in the ground where desired to re-propagate.
