  • Sedum rupestre - yellow blooms and green needle-like foliage

This blend of foliage, flowers, textures, and blooms fills an area with fantastic color and interest! A low, mat-forming mixture of plant sizes between 3 to 12 inches. Low water usage, low maintenance, with deer and rabbit resistance, Sedum shows off big time in the fall with waves of autumn hues!

The star-shaped blooms draw butterflies and beneficial insects from afar! There'll always be something blooming throughout the growing season. Evergreen in warmer climates of USDA growing zones 3 to 8, Stonecrop is a fantastic groundcover for 4-season interest and are perfect for the beginner gardener!

Planting and Application:

A fantastic groundcover that stays low and is easy to contain. Use as edging or as living groundcover throughout any garden bed or border. Great in Rock Gardens, crevice and rock walls, or create a Green roof! These are Xeric and Fire-wise landscaping-ready plants!

Plant in porch pots, patio planters and balcony and container gardening sites in full sun, where the textures and bursts of color throughout the year can be kept close at hand. These creeping flowering ornaments will flow over the edges and act as living mulch to cool the roots of other plants. These assorted Stonecrop species spread while adding incredible character to garden pots and edging!

Try your hand at creating a living wall or hanging picture frame Sedum garden for vertical gardening where space is at a premium! Create a hanging succulent ball topiary by creating a sphere of two hanging basket frames lined with sheet moss, Sphagnum moss or coconut coir, filled with soil and secured together. Tuck the Sedum into holes punched through the moss and let grow into a solid ball of Sedum!

Tough plants that won't need much fussing over, Creeping Sedum works great along hot, sunny pathways, driveways and that hell strip along the roadside, a salted sidewalk or driveway! Their tolerance of heat and sun, plus their thick root system makes Groundcover Stonecrops ideal for erosion control and filling hard-to-mow hillsides when planted en masse!
