Variegated Stonecrop DROUGHT-WISE This Sedum kamtschaticum Variegata is a kaleidascope of colors! Variegated Stonecrop has serrated green leaves, which are edged in white, yellow and sometimes orange and pink depending on how much sun it receives. Its coloration is quite variable, making it always a surprise from season to season. The flowers are a deep yellow that fade to orange little stars in late summer and just simply make this plant a show-stopper. Excellent Stonecrop to use on the outside edge of a patio, draping over a retaining wall or a a base plant for your rock garden. Sharp drainage is a must. Over watering will impair growth.

Gardening Tips from Fran
Sedum kamatchiaticum Variegatum is a must for every garden and is one of our best sellers in the STEPABLES Creeping Perennial line. Color, color, color!!! If you are considering which plant to order, this one will not disappoint. Variegated Stonecrop is as Drought Tolerant/Drought-Wise as they come! Give it extreme heat and watch it change colors!
I add this Stonecrop to my containers simply because of its array of dynamic colors. The foliage is outstanding with its green/white/cream foliage and that yellow star shaped flower that turns orange as it fades is spectacular!! What a show-off!!!
Plant this with early blooming daffodils for one killer show at the start of spring or add Variegated Stonecrop to your front entryway for tons of colorful interest throughout the year.
