Sedum Dragon’s Blood


DRAGON’S BLOOD is a sprawling, low-growing, ground-hugging, mat-forming stonecrop (also commonly called two-row stonecrop because leaves are in two columns along the stems) that is frequently grown as a ground cover. Green leaves (to 1″ long) with a tinge of purple-red on the margins become entirely red by fall. Leaves are thick, flattened, rounded, succulent and toothed or lobed near the tips. This is an evergreen plant that typically rises only 3-6” tall but spreads to 12-18” wide. Creeping, branching stems root at the nodes. Tiny, star-shaped, pink to red flowers (to 3/4” diameter) bloom above the foliage mat from mid-summer into autumn.
