Sedum ‘Chocolate Drop’

Upright mounds of lightly scalloped, glossy dark chocolate-brown leaves make a great addition to the border or the rock-garden. Soft rose-colored flowers top and accent the foliage. Mix with golds and bronzes for an unforgettable effect. So round and chocolatey, you'll want to “kiss” them!
