SEDUM EMPEROR'S WAVE (TELEPHIUM HYB.)
Emperor's Wave is a completely new and different variety of Sedum telephium, with its dense purple-red umbels set-off by its darkest purple foliage, making it a great attractor of bees and butterflies - especially late in the summer. This excellent choice for sunny borders and rockeries is a perfect cutting flower.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
