Sedum telephium subsp. ruprechtii 'Hab Gray'


Plant Type:


Sedum telephium subsp. ruprechtii ‘Hab Gray’ – We are impressed with this truly gray-leaved larger growing Stonecrop similar in habit to the very well-known ‘Autumn Joy’. The succulent foliage – rounded leaves placed architecturally on the stems – form a most handsome structure upon which summer flattened domes of flowers atop the architectural stems in creamy white to white infused with pink. Late season the flower heads turn sienna brown and blacken just in time for Halloween. As with other S. telephium cultivars the stems remain vertical and attractive all winter, one of few herbaceous perennials with winter interest. Site ‘Hab Gray’ in full blazing sun planted in very well-drained gritty soil for a tighter, bushier plant. Very nice. Cutting grown.

From Ruth B. (GA): I received the plants today, and they look wonderful and healthy!  So excited to see them grow… Thank you so very much!  Have a wonderful day!

A note from Gary G., a customer on 1.6.2021 "These plants are for my current research regarding a rare alpine swallowtail butterfly species (Parnassius behrii) endemic to California. I need this specific plant because through my experience (lots of failed attempts) this subspecies of Sedum telephium is currently the best substitution host plant for the larvae of the specific Parnassius species group. (the local natural host plant species, Sedum lanceolatum, only grow in very small quantities and is pretty localized at high altitudes, so it's hard for me to acquire enough of them to feed my larvae.)"
