Pull off those green shoots.  Dontt prune those green shoots...they will simply respond next year even stronger.

Dark Red Sedum

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 11:14

I grow a dark purple sedum called Posties Pride .  Seems better than purple emperor to me.  More compact 

Also another purple .......cannot recall the name but Xenox rings a bell......with beautiful purple foliage ,,slightly paler with a magnetic sheen to it.  Red buds about to open.  

I think the "secret" to growing the taller sedums is to cut back in late spring, grow in poor or dryish soil, not to allow competitive plants to swamp them  and not to feed.

Sounds exciting Woody 

Having a renewed fondness for sedums right now, ESP now that I remember to cut  them all back by half in May.   Only 4 varieties now but all chunky and self supporting and flowering
