Add a touch of magic to your backyard projects with some Voodoo Sedum (sedum spurium 'Voodoo'). This semi-evergreen perennial is both low-maintenance and a great way to reduce weed growth in your planting areas.
This particular sedum sports green, fleshy leaves with a flush of deep mahogany red foliage for a majority of the year, with these waxy, jagged ovals slowly rising a few inches off the ground as the plant grows. The stems of this sedum will start to curve upward as the plant matures, leaving space for buds amongst the foliage.
In the summer the plant's upright stems produce vivid pink-and-red-tipped flowers bloom like stars, bringing a unique color to the season. It's a spectacle you won't want to miss!
This sedum's blooms are a sight to behold, with a pinkish-purple so bright the blooms almost seem to glow in the evening sunset. The Voodoo sedum's flowers are as mystical as its name, and this bloom is a great addition to any garden!
Butterflies and other neighborhood pollinators love them just as much as you will, too! Those pink flowers might have to compete for attention with the wonderfully bright butterfly wings! This plant's flowers can provide nectar to the local pollinators but is largely left alone by deer or rabbits
Due to its low growth level, this perennial is best grown around the base of your taller shrubs and plants. Planting sedums about a foot apart can lead to a vibrant and effective deterrent to future weed growth.
In addition to being a great weed deterrent, the Voodoo sedum is very durable, needing little moisture to grow. This plant is great for those with a rock garden in need of a splash of color, or for a plant owner who sometimes forgets to water their garden from time to time!
Between its sharp color scheme, unique foliage, and weed prevention, the Voodoo sedum is a must-have for your garden. Order yours from our expert growers at Nature Hills Nursery today!
How to Use Voodoo Sedum in the Landscape
This plant brings to the table a unique coloration among perennials. Take a step away from your traditional green sheet of leaves and use this sedum to shake things up a bit.
Plant Voodoo Sedum at the base of your perennial garden for a strong, hardy foundation that brings its own color without stealing the show from the taller plants on display.
It even boasts the darkest burgundy of all red sedum, so this deep red could be used as a neat focal point or sharp contrast depending on the garden's direction.
Do you have a flower bed in need of an eyecatching border? Line the edges with Voodoo Sedum and watch the bright blossoms of the other perennials shine against Voodoo's dark coloring!
Rock gardens in search of a touch of magenta need look no further than a healthy Voodoo sedum. This sedum thrives in drier soils, making it a welcome addition to the rugged conditions of the average rock garden.
The Voodoo sedum can do more than just provide groundcover for other perennials as well. Several Voodoo sedums can be assigned planters scattered around a patio or garden to accent the space well. Better yet, plant in the same planter with another sedum for an eye-catching bicolor effect.
Pollinators will go head-over-heels for the Voodoo Sedum's star-shaped flowers as well. The bright purple petals may as well be a flashing sign advertising a free buffet of nectar to the butterflies and other pollinators that call your backyard home, and the plant's low stature helps to enable tiers of flowers for an efficient and beautiful pollinator garden.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Voodoo sedum tends to thrive in full sun. They love lounging in the sunlight for most of the day but can tolerate some hours in light shade.
Voodoo sedum is very durable, needing less water than your typical perennial once established. Hardy and drought-tolerant, the sedum can shrug off a few days (or even weeks!) without rain. This plant is rarely afflicted with any sort of disease and is largely ignored by pests or hungry mammals.
This plant prefers loose, well drained soils. Try to avoid heavier, moist soils rich in clay as a water buildup could harm your sedum. Nobody likes a soggy sedum, trust us!
It's always a good idea to add a layer of mulch around the base of your sedum. Not only does it raise the already astronomical aesthetic, but it will also control the moisture your plant gets. While the Voodoo sedum does a good job of deterring weeds on its own, it doesn't hurt to add some mulch to add both extra color and protection in your garden.
