Product Information

Also known as Hylotelephium 'Ruby Glow' this is an exceptional sedum that forms a low clump of spreading, deep red stems with purplish-green leaves and clusters of starry, deep crimson flowers.

Truly a garden gem, there are few plants easier to grow than Sedums (or stonecrops as they are also known) - even the most inexperienced gardener can get results.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Perfect when planted in generous drifts at the front of a sunny, well-drained border, this sedum softens hard edges and blurs the lines between other plants, bringing cohesion and flow to planting schemes.

As a perennial, plants die back over the winter, emerging again in the spring as a tight clump of succulent leaves before sending up its spikes of rosy blooms which are a valuable nectar source for butterflies and bees and are recommended for attracting pollinators into the garden.

Supplied as 6 garden ready plugs for immediate planting where they are to flower.

Care Information

Planting advice for Hylotelephium Sedum 'Ruby Glow'

  • Garden ready plugs can be planted straight into the garden where plants are to flower when all danger of frost has passed.
  • Use a trowel to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the root ball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

 

Aftercare advice for your sedum

  • A drought-tolerant plant, grows best in sandy, well-drained soil in a sunny position.
  • Requires minimal maintenance and can resist heat and cold temperatures to -25C.
  • Water regularly during particularly hot, dry periods until the plants are fully established.

 

Pruning advice for Sedum

  • Cut back the old stems and leaves after flowering to maintain their shape - although if you prefer, faded blooms can be left for winter interest.
  • Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
  • Once established, sedums can have a tendency to flop. To help prevent this, during the last week of May, cut one in every three stems back to the ground to produce plants that are less lush and flower slightly later.
