Description

Vigorous and Perfect for Containers

Stonecrop have a certain reputation for being natural born survivors, and we are happy to note that Sedum 'Touchdown Teak' is no exception. This amazing perennial practically takes care of itself, enduring heat, humidity, drought, cold and poor soil without breaking a sweat.

In addition to exceptional adaptability, Sedum 'Touchdown Teak' boasts outstanding foliage color that lasts all throughout the warm seasons and even long into winter. The handsome leaves are rounded and uniform and range in tones of red-brown and plum-brown.

In the middle of summer bright red flowers burst to life on this plant and add an extra 9 inches of beauty to this already astonishing stonecrop. The flowers spend all day courting butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees in the garden, but when cut also make wonderful Everlastings as well.

Sedum 'Touchdown Teak' sports multiple crowns, the tallest reaching only 8 inches high but the plant spreads double that in width, weaving a durable mat of attractive foliage that doesn't give weeds a chance.

Our favorite thing about Sedum 'Touchdown Teak' is its versatility as it is happy to add a burst of scarlet color to your landscape yet is compact enough to live just as well in containers. Like all sedum, Sedum 'Touchdown Teak' is quite self-sufficient once established, but be sure to coddle it a bit in its first year with ample water and food so it may form a hardy root system. Give Sedum 'Touchdown Teak' a chance and it will prove to be a star player in your garden.

Great addition to my sedum collection

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I like the unique varieties. I've had the old fashioned sedum in the yard for years but lately I've been trying the newer ones as they looked so interesting. The touchdown teak is doing very well in the yard. I like it very much for the color and for the fact that it is a different look
