Sedum SunSparkler® Cherry Tart

Deep red foliage over 3 seasons

It's another winner for Chris Hansen's stunning SunSparkler® series of drought-resistant, quick-spreading, ultra-colorful Sedum cultivars! 'Cherry Tart' regales you with bold cherry-red foliage over 3 seasons, gilding the lily with big rosy-pink flower clusters in late summer and early fall. For quick, weed-choking, tough-as-nails coverage of hot dry garden spots, you can do no better!

'Cherry Tart' is just 6 inches high, but quickly fills in up to 18 inches wide. The foliage is small and rounded, suffused with cerise-red tones that stand out from way down the street. Deer tend to leave this plant alone, but once the deep pink blooms appear in late summer (opening in clusters 5 inches wide!), the butterflies pay close attention. You will enjoy these flowers, but it's hard to miss them when they pass in mid-fall and the red foliage is revealed again in all its glory!

Like all the SunSparklers®, 'Cherry Tart' stands up to cold as well as heat, and once established it doesn't mind poor soil fertility and long periods of drought. It's ideal for containers that don't get watered as often as you'd like, and there's no better solution for hard-to-plant banks, slopes, and dusty garden spots receiving full sunshine. Given good drainage and some pampering the first season to get established, there's no stopping the SunSparklers®! Zones 4-9.

Not Just The Plants But Also This Company

I ordered 10 of these and 10 of another and received them today. I must say that the packing was incredible! Each plant was packaged with GREAT CARE. They are obviously healthy and happy. I'm SO glad that I ordered my plants from this company. It's amazing to find a company that cares not only about their plants but for us - their customers. I have ordered from another company and lost a lot of the plants due to it being jostled out of the pots and only to die on the bottom of the shipping box. Thank you, sincerely for being a wonderful company to do business with.

I bought the same plants from another company a few weeks ao, and there's no possible comparison to SunSparkler plants! These 1 qt. plants are well established, healthy and very much alive and actively growing. And they are way chipper than the other place! I am definitively coming back. 100% recommended!
