Sedum ‘Thunderhead’

Huge, deep rose flower heads that look like Oregon’s summer thunderhead clouds. Very stout, upright stems are a mid-border marvel. Handsome, grey-green foliage is the perfect foil for the dramatic long lasting flowers. One of the most majestic Sedums Terra Nova® has introduced.
