Showy Stonecrop (Sedum spectabile)

(aka: Hylotelephium spectabile)
Many butterflies love the small clusters of pinkish star-shaped flowers this unique plant offers, especially in fall for the late season and migrating butterflies. Showy Stonecrop reaches about 12-18 inches and looks great in borders or rock gardens. They have plump, fleshy leaves and they get flowers in late summer and fall. These plants are very easy to propagate; a single leaf placed in soil can produce roots. Showy Stonecrop is perfect to enjoy during the summer with its unique foliage and later in the season with its beautiful flowers.
