#ProPlantTips for Care:

Grow perennial Sedum in the sun to keep it happy - for at least 6 hours per day! Make sure it is in well-drained soils or it will melt away. Well-drained soils with moderate moisture at first keep this plant in great shape. Division of larger chunks will keep it happy as needed as it spreads - roughly every 3-5 years. Sedum are highly resistant to most pests and diseases. Trim down the stems to create a tidy fresh start each spring, before you see new growth begin to emerge.

  • Full Sun For The Most Color
  • Moderate to Low Soil Moisture Once Established
  • Nearly Any Very Well-Drained Soil Type
  • Prune Back Early Spring
  • Pest & Disease Resistant & Low-Maintenance
