Sedum takesimense ATLANTIS™ (‘Nonsitnal’ PP27454)
Common Name: Atlantis Sedum or Atlantis Stonecrop
This is no ordinary Sedum! You can’t help but stop and stare at this beautifully variegated groundcover stonecrop from Hortech, Inc. Small, serrated leaves are dark green with very wide creamy yellow margins. From a distance, the margins are what catch your eye. You may notice that the creamy margins become tinged with pink blush tones with cold temperatures late in fall. A great choice for tucking into rock gardens or dry landscapes, or in combination container with succulents!
Low, spreading sedums form a solid mat of foliage which is excellent for covering slopes or can be planted as a groundcover in sunny, dry areas. They are extremely drought tolerant and many are evergreen. These are terrific low-maintenance plants that always look their best.
Sedum Atlantis shows a fascinating combination of colours: green leaves with cream-coloured edges, pink flower buds, cherry red leaf buds and yellow flowers in summer. The foliage retains its colour during the summer and autumn. Atlantis has a dense growth and remains low until about 4-6″ high and 18″cm wide. Plant Atlantis in an average to dry soil that is well-drained. Atlantis stands preferably in full sun but also tolerates partial shade. It is a beautiful plant for in, for example, the rock garden, for green roofs, as a ground cover or in a container on terrace or balcony.
Heat resistant, drought resistant, humidity resistant, disease free, so the ideal plant for everyone!
