Small, but nearly impossible to miss! That is the best way to describe the Sweet n Sour Sedum (Sedum kamtschaticum 'Sweet and Sour') with its vibrant foliage! This low groundcover plant has variegated dark green to buttery-yellow foliage that creates a vivid two-tone hue as new growth is much lighter than older succulent foliage.
The succulent oval radiant leaves emerge a bright yellow in the spring before turning back into a dark green coloration. You won't be able to miss this stunning plant even when in the mix of other flowers. Come mid-summer, the most captivating golden yellow star flowers bloom beautifully and attract loads of pollinators like bees and butterflies!
This plant only grows to be 4 inches tall and 18 inches wide making it fabulous for filling the dull, empty spots to make your look complete. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4-9 and growing just 6-8 inches tall and 10-15 inches wide, this Stonecrop variety will grow in rough stuff, including sharply drained, sandy soils.
Sweet n Sour Sedum looks wonderful in mass planting along the edges of your patio and makes an illuminating, clean border for you and your guests to sit back and enjoy. Use them as an effective filler and spiller in your exterior container plantings and patio container gardens. They'll draw the eye, and add dramatic low-growing color. You can gift them as an easy-care, sun-loving exterior container plant potted up in Cactus mix.
Sedum is listed as a Firewise plant for many states and is a perfect choice to decorate the defensible space around your home and other structures. Sedums are also great for water-wise, Xeriscape gardens! Use on slopes, banks, borders, mass plantings, and in container combinations and everywhere in your sunny garden that you need a little brightness!
Small but mighty they are a great selection for your Rock Garden. What a statement they will make showing off how hardy they are in the sunny dry areas in your garden!
Be sure to give your perennial Sedum the very best treatment possible by planting in full sun to partial shade with very well-drained soil. To make the yellow coloration wow the crowd and ensure even moisture, you can add a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch to the base. This low-maintenance plant will need the occasional clean-up in the early spring to allow for the best growth possible in the next growing season.

Also known as Stonecrop, Sedum need full sun for the most flowers and very well-drained soil. Provide moderate, regular moisture and fertility. Prune down in the very early spring.
Sedum are reliable perennials so long as they have well-drained soil year-round.
Sedum are herbaceous perennials that will lose their leaves after frost and die back to the ground. They leave behind ornamental dried flowers and stems for winter interest. In spring, they regrow from their root systems anew!
Stonecrop or Sedum will not spread or become invasive, staying put where it's planted as low-growing mounding plants.
