How to Use Flaming Carpet Sedum in the Landscape

Achieve a consistently dynamic look by tucking these tiny plants throughout your landscape. This tried-and-true designer secret makes all the different between amateur and professional design style.

Focus on the ground-level details to complete your layered plan. You might be surprised to learn how much of an impact these energetic, petite perennials will make.

Use them on the south side of larger shrubs and perennials. Run them as a bold edging in your garden beds. Or plant Flaming Carpet Sedum at the top of a retaining wall, or in specially created planting pockets in the wall itself.

Allow them to spill down to soften the edge of tall planter boxes. They look great at the edge of raised garden beds, as well.

Fill a wide bare area with a cunning little mass planting. Space them four inches apart on center; measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

They make a memorable display in low-slung outdoor containers, too. Decorate your side tables with the outstanding color.

Plant them to fill in around a path of stepping stones. You'll love their vivacious look, and grow to appreciate their tough-as-nails nature.

Commercial property owners can also make a big splash with this colorful groundcover. Use on eye-catching projects such as rooftop gardens on outbuildings, birdhouses, and covered alfresco patios.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Please give Sedum a planting site with at least six hours of bright light a day. More sun means more color and a tighter form.

They do best in well-drained soil. Create a raised planting bed, if you need to improve your drainage.

Don't overwater your succulent Sedum. Supply them with a consistent low amount of water, and allow the top inch of soil to start to dry out between watering.

We recommend that you protect your investment with water during extended drought. Container plants need a regular schedule of supplemental water, as well.

Plan to gently remove any spent foliage in early spring. Trim to control the outward spread or rebalance the coloration at that time, as well.

Fair warning! You'll want more than one, and these will sell out very quickly. Act to lock in your order of Flaming Carpet Sedum now.
