The border varieties of Stonecrop are a dependable choice for the late summer and fall garden, offering foliage interest earlier in the season, then a colourful display of flowers in the fall. This selection begins to produce green broccoli-like buds in mid-summer, which gradually open into enormous deep rosy-pink flower heads, finally deepening to rich rusty-red. Even the dead flower heads have good winter effect. In rich soils, plants may be pinched in June to prevent floppiness. Outstanding cut flower, and also attracts butterflies. A recent American introduction.
