alpine stonecrop with blue-green leaves, flushed purple and deep pink star flowers
Hylotelephium cauticola ‘Lidakense’
~ was Sedum cauticola ‘Lidakense’
- deciduous perennial succulent
- rounded, fleshy, purple-flushed, blue-green leaves
- trailing stems of terminal flower clusters
- star-shaped, rose-pink blooms
- early autumn flowering
- winter die-back
Notes: Purchased Spring 2021 for a spare pot in the succulent potagerie. It is native to Hokkaido, Japan, where it grows along cliffs (‘cauticola’ means that), making this a most apt purchase for the Japanesque garden.
