Product Information

Sedum takesimense Atlantis ('Nonsitnal'), is The Chelsea Plant of The Year 2019, with organisers saying that it's 'an attractive, easy to grow, versatile and multi-functional plant.'

A native of south Korea, this variegated sedum is hardy in the UK, drought-tolerant, low-maintenance and very easy-to-grow - the gardener's perfect plant!

Such is its popularity, it's likely to be much in demand and with limited stock avaialable this year, make sure that you don't miss out! 

Perfect as ground cover, or for filling in gaps between plants, the succulent leaves of Atlantis forms a spreading mound of rosettes, reaching around half a metre or so wide. Their naturally creeping form makes them ideal for softening hard edges such as paths and walls, and they're perfect for growing in pots too.

Leaves initially emerge pure cream in colour, forming a wide cushion of striking serrated green leaves bordered in cream. These are followed by frothy yellow flowers from July to September. In autumn, the plants are flushed with another colour change as the leaves take on a subtle pink blush.

Found growing in Michigan in 2013 on a nursery that specialises in plants for ground cover, green roofs and walls, this hardy stonecrop is perfect for beginner gardeners or those looking to use eco-friendly, water-efficient plants in a modern garden

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready for immediate planting out, plants benefit from well-drained soil that stays on the dry side over winter

Care Information

Planting advice for Sedum takesimense Atlantis ('Nonsitnal'):

  • Grow in sandy, well-drained soil in a sunny position with some shade from hot midday sun which can scorch the variegated leaves.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare advice for stonecrop sedums:

  • Requires minimal maintenance and can resist drought and cold.
  • Although drought tolerant when established, regular watering promoted the best display of leaves and flowers.
  • Watering can be cut back over winter to err on the dry side to prevent rot.
  • Do not feed as this will produce floppy growth


Pruning Sedum takesimense Atlantis:

  • In general, plants do not need pruning.
  • Cut back the old stems and leaves after flowering to maintain their shape - although if you prefer, faded blooms can be left for winter interest.
