Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco is a stonecrop also known as Pink Stonecrop. Like the Sempervivum, this plant is also a family of the Crassulaceae.
This low ground cover is between 10/15 cm high and is also used on "green or eco roofs". This perennial deserves a place in your garden where there is nothing yet.
Also due to the dense growth habit, weeds have no chance.
Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco tolerates drought well, but also grows well in moderately moist places.
Sedum likes to be in a sunny place, but can also be planted in a partial shade. This evergreen plant also attracts many butterflies during the summer.
The very rich flowering of the plant runs from July to September. The flowers are yellow in color and bloom in a dense carpet of flowers on top of the red / purple colored foliage.
The young leaves are gray / red in the beginning, but turn red-purple / red quite quickly.
This contrasts nicely with other plants in your garden.
For planting, you can suffice with 8-10 plants per square meter.
Winter hardiness zone 5b (-25ºC).
