Fat leaf 'Lidakense' (Sedum cauticola 'Lidakense'): A robust and versatile succulent
The 'Lidakense' fat leaf, botanically known as Sedum cauticola 'Lidakense', is a remarkable succulent that is appreciated in many gardens and landscapes. The 'Lidakense' fat leaf is characterised by its compact, low growth, which makes it ideal for rock gardens, dry stone walls or as a ground cover. The blue-green, fleshy leaves are oval and slightly rounded, giving the plant an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
While the leaves are already impressive, Sedum cauticola 'Lidakense' takes it up a notch by producing a spectacular display of flowers in late summer to autumn. The star-shaped flowers can vary in hues from bright pink to delicate lavender. These flowers are a real magnet for bees and butterflies and add colour and life to the garden.
Low maintenance succulent
The 'Lidakense' fat leaf requires little care and is therefore suitable for less experienced gardeners. It thrives best in well-drained soil and prefers sunny to semi-shady locations. The plant is exceptionally drought tolerant and requires only occasional watering, especially during dry periods.
Sedum cauticola 'Lidakense' is extremely versatile and can be used in various garden areas. It is excellent as a ground cover to cover bare areas and prevent weed growth. It also comes into its own in rock gardens or on sunny slopes. It is also particularly suitable for green roofs.
Winter hardiness and care
One of the remarkable features of this butterwort is its winter hardiness. It survives cold winter temperatures well and retains its leaves. In spring you can prune the plant back slightly to encourage compact growth.
Overall, the 'Lidakense' fat leaf is an excellent choice for gardens looking for low-maintenance plants with a striking appearance. Its compact form, colourful flowers and uncomplicated care make it an enriching addition to any garden, pleasing not only the gardener but also any garden observer.
