Sedum ‘Cherry Truffle’
Multiple crowns of upright foliage are painted in purple, black, green and gray. With the summer sun, they turn to a velvety purple black. This compact grower fills a gallon pot quickly, which reflects the TERRA NOVA® breeding model, improving the overall habit of the genus. Warm-pink flowers top the plant in mid-July. Find out why some of the world's largest nurseries are replacing all their old Sedums with TERRA NOVA®'s varieties.
