3 left in stock
Cherry Tart Stonecrop features showy clusters of hot pink star-shaped flowers rising above the foliage from late summer to mid fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive succulent round leaves emerge olive green in spring, turning cherry red in colour throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The brick red stems are very colourful and add to the overall interest of the plant. Cherry Tart Stonecrop is a dense herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard. Cherry Tart Stonecrop will grow to be only 6 inches tall at maturity extending to 10 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 18 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 15 inches apart. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 15 years. This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application.
