Sedum 'Little Miss Sunshine'

Stonecrop

This groundcover Sedum is perfect for rock gardens, combination containers, or the front of the border. 'Little Miss Sunshine' is prized for its incredibly dark green, glossy foliage, compact size, and tidiness in the landscape. From early to midsummer, tiny clusters of yellow flowers cover the polished habit. This perennial is tough and drought tolerant once established, so it's perfect for areas with hot, dry summers.


Low, spreading sedums 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.

Stonecrop Growing and Maintenance Tips

Divide sedum every 3-4 years to maintain its compact growth habit. Older plants tend to split in the center if they have not been divided. Pinching the taller varieties back by half in early summer will also help prevent them from splitting. This plant is not usually bothered by pests or diseases. The seed heads of the taller varieties provide excellent winter interest and food for birds. Remove them in spring when the new growth begins to show.
