Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride’
Sedum x hybrida ‘Postman’s Pride’ is characterized by compact, bushy habit, very dark brown to nearly black succulent leaves, and flowers that start as dark purple buds and open to a dark pinkish-red. ‘Postman’s Pride’ has a more erect plant habit without any tendency to “fall apart” as the plant matures. The inventor has observed this tendency in many dark-leaved selections of Sedum.
When compared with the male parent plant, Sedum ‘Purple Emperor’, ‘Postman’s Pride’ exhibits a more consistent and uniform dark brown coloration to the foliage whereas the foliage of ‘Purple Emperor’ has been observed to “green up” especially in conditions of shade. Suitable for both container work and the landscape.
