Emerald Coast Growers has been licensed to grow nine new Terra Nova sedums, the companies say.
“The exciting thing about these sedums is that they stay strong and upright,” says Cheri Markowitz, sales manager with Emerald Coast. “They’re compact and won’t break apart.”
The Candy series features Chocolate Drop (chocolate-brown upright stems with rose-colored flowers) and Raspberry Truffle (rosy pink flowers over scalloped deep brown/purple leaves). Plants grow 12 to 14 inches and are hardy to USDA Hardiness Zones 4-9. The Party Hardy series includes Beach Party (masses of starry, light rose-pink flowers against yellow-green, red-edged foliage), Birthday Party (big dark rose pink flower heads over bronze/purple foliage) and Pool Party (light pink clusters contrasting with aqua-blue-green foliage). Plants grow 10 to 24 inches and are hardy in Zones 4-9.
‘Class Act’ offers rounded masses of rose flowers on dense upright mounds of muted green leaves. It grows 16-inches high and is hardy to Zones 4-9.
‘Crystal Pink’ bears big heads of icy, pale pink starry flowers on short stems. It grows 16” high and is hardy to Zones 4-9.
A dwarf form and the shortest and tightest S. spectabile type around, ‘Hot Stuff’ [shown in photo] features bright pink flower heads. Growing 14-inches tall, it makes tight, solid mounds of pale green foliage. Hardy to Zones 4-9.
'Mr. Goodbud’ is a color breakthrough with dark mauve flowers that open from light pink buds. It grows 15 inches and is hardy in Zones 4-9.
