Sedum spurium 'Dragon's Blood', Caucasian or Two Row Stonecrop, is a selected cultivar of the type species that has spectacular dark red to purple scalloped-foliage with dark pink to red flowers. Native to the Caucasus, Iran and Turkey it is a tough, hardy, drought-tolerant ground-cover that is ideal for dry gravel gardens, rockeries, stonewalls, terraces and roof gardens. Its dramatic dark colour makes it a perfect plant to contrast with other green or blue foliage Sedums. In full sun the foliage thickens, turning from green with red margins in the spring to a full rich crimson in the summer.
Sedum spurium 'Dragon's Blood is sometimes encountered by the name Phedimus spurius or by the German cultivar name, 'Schorbuser Blut’.

Lovely little plantThis is spreading nicely in my gravel garden. It’s a lovely brick red and the birds so far have not tried to dig it up. The little feathered fiends have even pecked an agave, but not this. Yet...
Even better in real lifeMy goodness this is a very pretty plant! Really happy with this
