Lovely as a Massed Ground Cover
Rich, plum-purple foliage grows quickly to form a dense, well-branched blanket of color. A touch of mint green, as the new leaves emerge, contributes pleasing contrast. Pink flower clusters in late summer. Sedum Firecracker was developed by plant breeder, Chris Hansen. Perfect for troughs, stone walls, live roofs or a massed groundcover as it will gently drape over edges. Stonecrop provides beautiful low-care summer and fall color. Sedum store water in their thick succulent leaves which enables them to be extremely drought tolerant.

Sedum General Information

Sedum are grown for their distinctive fleshy foliage. They are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes - upright and groundcovers. A reliable, hardy and easy-to-grow perennial. Star-shaped flowers are usually in clusters or sprays that often change color throughout their bloom time. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Sedum Plant Care

Sedum prefer full sun with average to poor well-drained soil. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring. Stems pull off easily and will root readily for transplanting. Winter damaged foliage can be cut back in early spring for a flush of new growth.
