Sedum 'Little China' is a miniature form of one of our favorite sedums, Sedum tetractinum. This cute gem comes from Paul Little of Little Hill Nursery in Memphis. In good soil, a 4" pot will form a ground-hugging 3" tall x 2' wide patch in one year. The medium green leaves of Sedum 'Little China' are only .5" wide...1/3 smaller than typical coral reef sedum. The medium green, rubbery-textured, paddle-shaped foliage takes on a lovely burgundy-red cast at the onset of cool weather. In late spring, the patches are topped with open sprays of bright yellow flowers that hug the foliage.
