Stonecrop Growing and Maintenance Tips

Sedum is one of the most popular perennials grown in American gardens because it is very easy to grow and hardy in most areas of the country. Because of its thick, succulent leaves which can store water, sedum is drought tolerant. It should be sited in average to poor soil that is well-drained. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be lanky and open. Most varieties should be grown in full sun to light shade. The lower growing types, however, typically can survive in partial shade. This plant is not usually bothered by pests or diseases. The seed heads provide winter interest and food for birds. Remove them in spring when the new growth begins to show
