Exceptionally hardy variety. This low-growing Sedum has dark purple, glossy leaves and produces rosy-pink blooms in late summer and into the fall. Lovely contrast. Easily grown in full sun and well-drained soil. The more sun this plant gets the darker will be the foliage. I saw a mass-planting of Bertram in a hot, baking, dry situation and it was stunning -- positively glowing -- and the foliage was jet black. Like all sedum, Bertram is very drought tolerant once established. HEIGHT: 15-20 cm SPREAD: 15-20 cm

Sedums are an easy answer to our continuing summer droughts and water shortages. These fleshy, succulent plants are excellent for hot, dry areas. In addition many varieties provide three --- even four -- season interest.
Sedum are easy to grow in a sunny, well-drained site. They are free of insects and diseases and perform best when not fertilized. Virtually all Sedum will attract butterflies and many are also attractive to hummingbirds.
