A very low-growing Sedum that will look stunning - almost flat mats of tiny red leaves. The colour is best when grown in a poor (but well-drained) soil in full sunshine. Perfect in a trough where it is low enough to grow around other plants without smothering them. Coral Carpet is also a first class choice for growing between paving stones etc. and being succulent, it's very drought resistant. In fact, this is one plant that will survive any weather, dry or wet.
It usually flowers around mid summer - heads of white, pink tinged flowers on 7cm (3") red stems, but like so many good foliage plants, the flowers play second fiddle to the foliage.
The main picture shown here (taken early spring) shows a plant just 'on the turn' with the red leaves starting to develop. The plant in a pot shows the full summer coulour.
