This form of 'stonecrop' bears gently domed heads of vivid pink star-like flowers, on sturdy stems with fleshy greyish-green foliage. 'Carl' is a fabulous and prolific plant, producing striking, nectar rich flowers much beloved by bees and butterflies in late summer heading into autumn.

Its intense colour really packs a punch when planted in groups at the front of a sunny border, or in containers around a seating area. Very versatile, its preference for dry soil with a fair amount of nutrients means that it is also an excellent choice for a gravel garden, or areas subject to occasional droughts. If Sedum tend to flop in your soil, cut back stems by half in late May to get a sturdier plant. This plant will thrive in full sun, in a free draining soil that is fairly fertile.
