This NEW SunSparkler® Sedum ‘Firecracker’ was selected for its propensity to form numerous multiple branches from a single 128-cell plug with NO pinch or NO PGR’s applied.

Pictured here is a quart container which was planted with a single 128-cell plug on May 1, 2013.  This picture was taken just 6 weeks later on June 12, 2013 and shows the numerous side branches that have appeared in this short time-frame.

All of these appeared without any use of a “pinch” or PGR’s.

Here’s the same quart pot pictured on August 24, 2013.

You’ll notice how all of the side branches have expanded to create this colorful mound of cherry-red shiny foliage!

This ability to form many strong multi-branched stems in a single pot prevents the dreaded Sedum “summer-flop”!
