So chocolately you might want to eat it! The unique reddish-brown foliage topped with tiny yellow summer flowers make 'Chocolate Ball' a "must have" for any Sedum Garden in zones 4 through 9. It is a dependable, drought-tolerant, high quality plant with brownish foliage foliage that keeps its color throughout all the seasons.
