Sedum Blue Pearl ('Sunsparkler') (PBR) - The colour of the fleshy foliage is reason enough to grow this drought-tolerant sun-lover, as it is a dusky shade of purple that intensifies as the summer progresses, providing a beautiful contrast to silvers and pinks. This plant is also valuable though for its long flowering season, producing small clusters of bright pink blooms, which are irrisistable to butterflies, bees and other pollinating insects.
