Sedum 'Frosted Fire'
This variegated 'Stonecrop' offers upright, fleshy, green leaves that are strikingly edged in cream, above which, open attractive, pale pink flowerheads that deepen to coppery red in late summer. This is a great plant for containers. This plant dies down in winter to regrow in spring. The faded flower heads can still be an architechtural feature in winter, so trim those off in the spring.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Trim off old flower heads and to shape and size required in spring to encourage new growth.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
August - September
