In our garden trials, Sedum 'Sunset Cloud' has outperformed the more commonly sold clones of similar appearance such as Sedum 'Vera Jameson' and Sedum 'Bertram Anderson'. Sedum 'Sunset Cloud' is a 1972 hybrid (S. maximum 'Atropurpureum' x S. telephium var. borderi) from the late Jim Archibald's former nursery, The Plantsman. For us, Sedum 'Sunset Cloud' emerges in spring from a dormant rhizome with 1' long arching stems clothed with purple-grey, dollar-sized, round leaves. In midsummer, stems of the 2' wide clump are tipped with russet-red flower heads. We grow this in a well-drained raised bed where its display can be better appreciated.
