Lemon Ball Sedum
Intense Yellow Thrives in Full Sun
It's that plant that when anyone sees it growing, they always say "What is that plant?". It is that plant that stands out because of its intense yellow color of flowers and foliage. Lemon Ball Sedum, Sedum mexicanum 'Lemon Ball', is a ground cover that does not disappoint. The super sunny yellow color performs so well in the heat.
Rock your rock garden with this incredible ground cover that is a xeriscape plant. Once it is established, it needs little additional water. Grow it in the sun to keep it happy. Make sure it is in well-drained soils or it will melt away. Rock gardens offer interesting nooks and crannies to tuck this guy in, and typically offer well drained soils. They also work extremely well in raised beds.
Interesting, fleshy leaves are arranged around the stems, and the plants make neat matt of that incredibly brilliant yellow color. Tuck 'Lemon Ball' into your sunny patio pots and hanging baskets to carry that same color through your yard. Use it as a ground cover in those hot, exposed areas. They make great edging plants too.
'Lemon Ball' is a no brainer to grow, and will accent your landscape amazingly well. Imagine this plant with some great companions like small ornamental grasses or sedges in complementary or contrasting colors. They are great in mass plantings around roses and perennial borders too.
The star like flowers are also yellow, but hard to see from a distance as the leaf color is much the same. Yellow on yellow just punching up the hot colors in your yard.
Works well in zones 7 to 11. Well-drained soils and full sun keep this plant in great shape. Division of larger chunks will keep it happy as needed. 'Lemon Ball' is identical to 'Lemon Coral', and like 'Angelina', but takes the heat beautifully.
- Easy to grow & care
- Thrives in heat & sun
- Great groundcover
