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.

Sedum Plant Care:

Sedum prefer full sun and average to poor well-drained soil. Can be divided in spring. No need to deadhead during the growing season. Cut back in early spring, as new growth will come from the ground, first appearing as little nuggets pushing up through the soil. Pinch back once during early summer if height control is desired.
