Sedum telephium 'Purple Emperor'
Common Name: Stonecrop
Sedum telephium 'Purple Emperor' has black-purple foliage and rosy pink flowers. It is one of the first sedums to bloom in late summer. It attracts pollinators and is drought-tolerant. 'Sedum' means 'seat', in reference to some plants in this genus who grow in stone walls (hence the common name); 'telephium' is from the Greek word for 'distance'.
