Sedum Sunsparkler® 'Dazzleberry' Description
AVAILABLE EARLY APRIL 2020!
This exciting and colorful SunSparkler® sedum comes from breeder Chris Hansen.
Sedum 'Dazzleberry' begins in spring with smoky blue-gray foliage that forms a colorful groundcover mound only 8" tall and 18" wide.
GIANT 6-8" raspberry-colored flower heads appear in late summer and are visible from over 200 feet away! These brilliant blooms remain colorful for over 7 weeks and make excellent long-lasting cut flowers.
You can add some much-needed late summer color to the front of your perennial border or drought-proof garden with this compact growing new Groundcover sedum!
Chris selected dazzleberry from 1000's of seedlings he had been growing and evaluating in his field in western Michigan and considers it a breakthrough in groundcover sedum breeding.
He was striving for a new groundcover-type sedum with a compact growth habit, attractive foliage, large flower heads, and brilliant flower color.
The winner was sedum Dazzleberry!
Dazzleberry's compact groundcover habit makes it the perfect companion to fragrant coneflowers, long-blooming KnockOut roses, & multi-season ornamental grasses.

More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
Soil: Average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Thrives in sandy to gravelly soils of moderate to low fertility. Needs sharp soil drainage to perform well. Prefers moist soils with good drainage.
Light: Does best in full sun, but appreciates some protection from harsh sun and heat exposure in very hot summer regions.
Water: Medium to dry -- Considered drought-tolerant once established. Over watering will impair growth.
Spacing: 1 - 2 ft.
Fertilizing: On average soil, seldom needs fertilizer. A handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer sprinkled on the soil each spring is generally all that is needed for poorer soils. If growing in rich soil, it should only be fertilized every other year. Dry granular fertilizers must be watered into the soil.
Winterizing: Does not need mulch in the winter. Remove the debris (such as the remains of showy sedums) from under and around your plants in the late fall and continue to remove any debris as it accumulates. Small animals and bugs may take home in accumulated debris during cold weather.
Maintenance & pruning: Can cut back in Autumn, after flowering. Divide in spring.
