(aka: Hylotelephium 'Back in Black') Sedum 'Back in Black', a 2021 introduction, is a long-awaited break-through in upright, purple-leaf stonecrops. Virtually all previous efforts at such a plant have failed to thrive in our hot, humid summer, due either to disease or just pure mid-summer butt-ugliness. For close to a decade, Walters Gardens has been working to surpass the previous standards, Sedum 'Purple Emperor' and Sedum 'Black Jack', and Sedum 'Back in Black' is now the new gold standard. The 1.5' tall x 1.5' wide deciduous clump of dark purple-black, rubbery foliage is stunning, even before it produces the mid-summer purple-grey buds that open as frothy lavender-pink flower heads. Good drainage and at least half day sun is all it takes to succeed with amazing new hardy succulent.
