Look What’s Blooming – September 18, 2012

This Sedum plant, also known as stonecrop, has edible leaves.  It was eaten by many native cultures across the northern hemisphere, and is still used as a salad green (mostly in Europe) today.  It’s also popular for use on ‘green roofs‘ due to the density of the plant.  Come see this plant blooming abundantly in the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum today!

Several varieties of sedum will be on sale at the Arboretum’s upcoming Fall Plant Sale. – sedum ‘neon’- (can currently be seen in bloom in the stage garden), a magenta pink, and a groundcover sedum.  Come see us at the Fall Plant Sale!
