Sedums that last all year
Most Hylotelephium are the stars of autumn, but some have four-season appeal. Their clustered flower buds are interesting long before they open. Many have colourful foliage. Even after flowering, its drying heads keep it looking attractive through winter. H. spectabile Purple Emperor and H. telephium ssp maximum Atropurpureum start off with purpletinged blue-grey foliage in spring. By summer-autumn, foliage is a deep purple to reddish-purple.
They finish with rosy pink flowers in autumn.
