Sedum 'Lime Zinger' combines a great display of colourful foliage with a nice tight habit. Succulent apple green leaves are edged in cherry red and grow into a dense weed suppressing mat that is just 10 cms tall. The carpet of colourful foliage is topped with large clusters of soft pink flowers from late August through September.
Low, spreading Sedums like 'Lime Zinger' form a solid mat of foliage which is excellent for covering slopes or can be planted as a groundcover in sunny, dry areas. They are extremely drought tolerant and many are evergreen. These are terrific low-maintenance plants that always look their best.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Sedums are "plant and forget" perennials. Because of their ability to store water in their thick succulent leaves they are very drought tolerant. They do well in average well drained soil in full sun to light shade. Do not add extra organic material because this will make the plants open and floppy.
