Stonecrop Interesting Notes

In 1970, Vera Jameson from Gloucestershire, England, discovered this sedum as a chance seedling, a cross between S. telephium maximum 'Atropurpureum' and S. 'Ruby Glow', this beautiful plant adds color to the garden even when not in bloom. New growth shows blue-green leaves that slowly turn deep burgundy purple. In winter, the flower heads add winter interest even though the plant dies down to the ground. This sedum is clump-forming; it is so beautiful you wish it would creep around the garden. All these attributes make it a garden gem I would not be without it in my garden. Mine grows on a rock wall above the pond next to sedges and small rhododendrons. The flowers are suitable for drying. It also makes a wonderful container plant placed at the base of a taller plant, perhaps with something with golden foliage. S. 'Vera Jameson' is a great bee and butterfly plant. - Debbie Teashon, Two Rainy Side Gardeners
