Spectacular grey-blue foliage
Sedum 'Marina' is a recent introduction (2013) from Terra Nova Nurseries (Oregon, USA). It has bluish-grey foliage in the spring, which turns to lavender and then purple in the autumn. This autumn stonecrop produces compact bouquets of dark pink flowers in late summer.
A compact variety, it grows up to 30 cm in height and spreads out to form a dense cushion about 40 cm wide. In the garden, we plant Sedum 'Marina':
- on its own, as edging for a sunny border alongside silver or blue foliage varieties (Artemisia, Tanacetum, Dianthus);
- en masse in a hardscape garden on a bed of grey slate or pebbles;
- as a feature plant in a patio pot;
- at the front of a bed as a companion to Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna' (beginning and end of summer), Echinacea 'Magnus Superior' (end of summer) and for final fireworks with Schizachyrium scoparium 'Blue Heaven'. Grey, Blue, Pink, Purple and Violet!!!
For mixed borders, gravel gardens, rockeries, and pots.
Cultivation: in the sun in ordinary soil, which is well-drained in winter. Hardy.
Synonym: Hylotelephium 'Marina'
