‘Fuldaglut’ is a low-growing, mat-forming, maroon-leaved stonecrop or sedum (also commonly called two row stonecrop) cultivar that grows 2-3” tall but spreads to 18” wide. Creeping, branching stems roots at the nodes. Tiny, star-shaped, rose-red flowers (to 3/4”) bloom in four-branched inflorescences (cymes to 4-5” tall) in August. Thick, succulent, obovate, maroon leaves (to 1” long) are toothed near the ends. Leaves are attractive throughout the growing season. Foliage is semi-evergreen in St. Louis winters.
No serious insect or disease problems.
