This autumn stonecrop, Sedum 'Black Beauty' was introduced in 2011 and has a compact, well-ramified, rounded habit.
Its extraordinary foliage glints with bronze and black hues and metallic highlights and boasts delicate raspberry flowers in late summer.
In the nursery it really stands out from the other dark foliage sedums. First come, first served!
In the garden, we use it as a focus plant to edge a sunny rockery together with lovely silver foliage plants: Artemisia 'Little Mice', Achillea ageratifolia.
Grow in the sun in light, well-drained, ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry.
Grows well in pots and troughs.
