Details

Mixed Sedum Flats (Stonecrop) flats consisting of mixed cultivars growing in thin, undivided flats to be used on rooftop gardens, ground covers on hot, dry areas instead of turf, along patios or perhaps to tear into pieces to be used in rock walls or along pathways. The cultivars are planted in random patterns and can be installed in any direction. Sun loving plants are grown in shallow flats that will need to be irrigated until established, than only as needed after they have rooted in. Overall, the selections include low growing varieties with different leaf and flower coloration. The flats can include 'Lemon Drop (shiny, green leaved w/ yellow flowers), Cauticola (blue leaved w/ purple undersides and raspberry colored flowers later in the season), 'VooDoo' (red leaved, red flowers), and sometimes we include 'Angelina' (yellow, brush like foliage arranged around the stem that turns chartreuse in summer and orange and yellow in fall). An outstanding, low growing ground cover where it is hot and dry (xeriscape). Zone 4. *Shipped in spring only*

Planting & Care for Mixed Sedum Plants

Preparation

  • They prefer full sun.
  • Plant in rock gardens, walls, pathway niches, and containers; as edging for borders; or in sweeps on hillsides.
  • They like poor or average well-draining garden soil.
  • No supplemental watering is needed once they are established.
  • They will not survive standing water for any length of time.

Planting Containers

  • Mixed Sedum mats can be planted in March.
  • Water plants thoroughly a few hours before planting.
  • Eliminate all weeds and grass from the area before planting.
  • Place in the hole so that the plant will grow at the same soil level as it did in the pot.
  • Spread the roots and backfill with the soil that was removed from the hole.
  • Press the plant gently into place.

Pruning - Through-out the Season
