Red Stonecrop (Sedum Spurium 'Schorbuser Blut') is a very attractive border plant that does not mind the shade and can be used as ground cover under trees and shrubs forming an expansive red carpet. Its star-shaped red flowers stand out from its beautiful dark green, slightly red leaves. Flowers absolutely anywhere. Another advantage of these plants is that they suppress the growth of weeds.

"Six Easy to Grow Flowering Plants." Can't wait til the spring flowers start showing up in the nursery! I'll probably pick up some purple coneflowers and black-eyed susans. Interestingly enough, salvia always seems to show up on these "easy" plant lists, but is determined to hate me, heh.

Its drought, heat, and humidity tolerance makes it an excellent choice for gardeners with extreme temps. Loves full sun and is an annual except in zones 9 to 11.
