  • Description

  • Notes

Brilliant chartreuse-yellow, needle-like foliage forms a quick groundcover. Adds cheery color to containers, dry slopes and flowering borders, as well as being a good bulb cover. In winter, foliage turns orange in northern climates. Perennial.
As a group, sedums prefer well-drained soils, including sandy-loam, clay-loam, or rocky soils, as long as it is well drained. In nature, most sedums occur in light shade or partly sunny sites, while a few are also well-adapted to full sun situations. They can tolerate both drought conditions or more frequent watering, but the key is good drainage. Their xeric nature makes sedums popular for use in rock gardens, roof gardens, wall gardens, and living wreaths.
