An interesting cultivar with deep purple foliage starts out green and as it matures becomes darker. It requires well-drained soil, often grown in sandy or gravelly soil or rock gardens. Drought-tolerant.

Sedums, in general, have been given a fire-resistance score of 10, by Idahofirewise.org. This score means they are considered a low-ignition plant due to their high moisture content, low growth, and other characteristics. Idaho Firewise suggests 5 feet as the minimum distance from your home.
