Description

Height x Spread: 45cm x 45cm

Dense clusters of tiny white flowers like starbursts, open from greenish-white buds above fleshy grey-green stems with rounded foliage. Like most Hylotelephium this plant starts to perform in spring, when its pale buds emerge from the ground, slowly developing into clumps of distinctive foliage. In late summer the white flowers appear, becoming more fluffy as the season moves into autumn. Seedheads stay upright through winter, looking attractive, especially when edged with frost.

This plant responds well to the Chelsea Chop i.e. being cut back a third of stems by half in late May to prolong flowering. The foliage is often used for cut flower arrangements. To get the best results, grow it in full sun in any poor to fairly fertile soil, that is well-drained
