The garden centres seem to have pink or white sedums but in a herbaceous border I want to plant a sedum with a stronger deeper red. I think some deeper reds come in the smaller rockery sedums but I want a larger plant. Any suggestions and variety names please.



Try Sedum Purple emperor. That is about 2 foot tall with dark red leaves and flowers. There are other dark red tall ones, but that is probably the easiest to find.

That's the one I was going to suggest owdboggy. I find seedlings from it that all have the same dark foliage so it should be easy to bulk up if you need to
