Sedum spathufolium 'Cape Blanco' or 'Capo Blanco' is one of the most 'bloomed' of all Sedum. The bloom is a waxy coating to prevent moisture loss from the leaves, similar to that found on plums and grapes.
This makes the plant from a distance appear white or silvery, very pretty in an extensive planting. When cooler weather arrives, and even into the spring, the leaves take on a plummy pink colour.
The flowers are held on short 4-6cm stems and are bright golden.
