How to Use Lime Zinger Sedum in the Landscape
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. 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.
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.
Want a low-maintenance focal point? Create an elevated planting bed along the length of your patio. 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'.
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 "drifts" 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 closer together.
#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 use 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 plant. They tolerate high heat and drought.
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.
