Please don’t be without this sedum, it is such an important source of late nectar for bees and butterflies and at a time when most things are fading, or simply gone, it looks pretty too. What I love about this plant is that fact that it looks so good over winter and into spring, even without its flowers, as its seed heads last so well, looking great covered in frost or snow and this is important as insects and catterpillars need places to hibernate over this period. Being a succulent, they will more than cope with dry spells and the amount of bees and butterflies they attract make them one of the best plants you can have in the garden at any time of the year. If you find it becoming leggy, then simply cut it back in the summer and you’ll have a shorter, stockier plant that will stand up well without any support.
