Growing and Maintenance Tips

Because of their ability to store water in their thick succulent leaves sedums 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. Occasionally all green shoots will emerge on this variety. They should be removed as they appear because they will grow more aggressively than the variegated shoots. This Sedum  is easy to propagate; simply break pieces off in early summer and stick them in the ground. Ttim stems and dead flower heads back in early spring.
