One of the best SunSparkler® Stonecrop has to be the colorful Lime Zinger Sedum (Sedum 'Lime Zinger')! Hardy, durable and charming, Lime Zinger has fleshy, red-tipped foliage all season and dramatic pink flowers in late summer!

It features a fascinating appearance with unusual coloration from the earliest days of spring. You'll love the exceptional foliage, which is comprised of tightly packed, lime-green rosettes of succulent foliage, edged with a red border. Enjoy the pretty pink clusters of flowers in late summer that last until autumn. The local butterflies certainly will!

Lime Zinger Sedum is a fast-growing plant, resistant to leaf scorch, drought and is humidity-tolerant, and amenable to poor soil conditions. It is also resistant to deer and rabbit pressure. One of the famous SunSparkler® series developed by Chris Hansen, Lime Zinger Sedum is a delightful choice of groundcover for almost any location.

Hardy throughout a wide swath of the US, this perennial Sedum thrives throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 9 and tolerates both heat and chill. Most people would expect to provide special care for such an exceptional plant, but Lime Zinger will be a carefree part of your yard for years to come!

Planting and Application:

Add these outstanding detail plants to your landscape design as an important finishing touch. You'll soften and polish up the edges of your plantings, and suppress weeds by including groundcover at the sunny base of taller perennials and shrubs.

Lime Zinger is an excellent low-growing Xeriscaping plant that can be used to edge your patio plantings, and in mixed planters. Use these delightful Sedums all throughout your landscape at the edge of each of your mixed border garden beds. This is a subtle, but very effective way to unify your entire design together.

Of course, Lime Zingers make wonderful additions to Rock Gardens, into crevice gardens and stone retaining walls! Tuck them here and there into special planting pockets with sharp-draining soil. You'll appreciate the interplay between the rough stone texture and the spilling, softness of the Lime Zinger. Want a low-maintenance focal point? Create an elevated planting bed along the length of your patio!

Use them in your seasonal containers as "Spillers", where they will drape over the edge of the pot. You'll enjoy their good looks all season, right into early winter. You can also use Lime Zinger as a feature plant by itself in a long, low pot. Add two or more to establish a lush look quickly.

Add a Sedum collection! You'll gain visual interest without hassle. Use the taller, upright varieties like 'Autumn Joy' as a backdrop, and tuck in yellow-flowering like 'Kamtschaticum' or red foliage varieties, like 'Dragon's Blood'. Or create an entire SUNSPARKLER® series display! Give Lime Zinger a prominent position in your collection! The bold coloration catches the eye and moves it along!

Plan out your planting pattern on paper first. Create irregular, oblong en masse plantings of several varieties, like you would do spring-flowering bulbs. Use 3 or 4 plants at the widest point of the drift, and move to a single plant on either end. Space these special plants 8 - 12 inches apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next. You'll get them to create a solid fill faster if you space them closer together.

Lime Zinger creates a dense mat that is perfect for keeping weeds at bay. This fast-growing cover performs beautifully in the most difficult of growing conditions. Plus Sedum are on many Firewise lists for use in defensible spaces around your home!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

This rugged little perennial groundcover does best when grown in full sun, with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. You may not see as much bold foliage coloration if you plant in partial shade (also called light shade) which is classified as 4 hours of sunlight a day.

Give these low-maintenance sun-loving ground covers as much light as possible. You'll get better foliage color and more flowers! Although it tolerates rich soil, it loves well-drained average to poor soil. If needed, elevate your plantings in a raised bed to give them that well-drained soil they require.

Water carefully to establish your new plants during their first season. Check the soil moisture by poking your finger into the soil. Is it wet? Skip watering that day. Is it getting dry? Give them some water, but no need to drown them. Once your Lime Zingers are established in your soil, they'll be a low-water usage plant. They tolerate high heat and drought.

All plants appreciate a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch around their roots. Carefully rake Lime Sedum to clean up any fallen leaves and last year's seedheads. Remove them in spring when the new growth begins to show.

  • Best Color in Full Sun
  • Moderate to Low Soil Moisture Once Established
  • Nearly Any Very Well-Drained Soil Type
  • Prune Back Early Spring
  • Disease Resistant, Cold Hardy & Heat Tolerant
  • Drought Tolerant & Deer Resistant
  • Perfect Plant for Beginners!
