    Stonecrop (Phedimus spurius) 'John Creech' is an attractive groundcover sedum with dark pink late summer blooms and small, scalloped leaves. Pollinators enjoy its blossoms. Phedimus spurius also attracts hoverflies, a beneficial insect that feeds on aphids. 'John Creech' spreads by creeping stems that root as they grow, and it enjoys sun.
