Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
  • Water Need: Sparingly
  • Growing Instructions:

    Sedum are shipped as dormant bare-roots and for best results, it is important that they be planted promptly upon arrival. If you are not able to plant the root(s) upon arrival, keep them in the bag and store in a cool above freezing, °C (34°F) temperature, dry, dark location for a day or two. If the roots and medium in the bag are dry, mist them with water to moisten.

    • It is a good idea to soak the root(s) for 30 to 60 minutes before planting. Soaking will hydrate the plants and reduces the stress associated with the drying of soil around the roots after planting.
    • Sedum should be planted after the last frost and soil is workable. They perform best in full sun or a location that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sun.
    • Sedum prefers poor, sandy and rocky soil that is well draining. Rich soil can result in leggy growth. Wet or clay soil can cause rot. If your soil is heavy clay and drains slowly, or very sandy and does not hold water, it is a good idea to amend the soil before planting to improve fertility and drainage. Loosen the soil to a depth of 30 cm (12") and work in peat moss, ground bark or compost.
    • Dig a hole several inches wider and deeper than the roots. Create a mound of soil in the bottom of the hole. Position the bare-root on top of the mound and spread the roots out around the mound of soil holding the crown (where the roots come together and meet the stem) at soil level or barely below 1 cm (0.5"). Carefully backfill the hole with soil and lightly tamp the soil over the newly planted root to remove any air pockets. Water thoroughly to settle the soil. Space plants 50-60 cm (20-24") apart. As soon as you see green shoots breaking through the ground this means the roots have broken dormancy.
    • Sedum are perennials and will over winter. In the Fall, after a hard frost, the plant can be cut back to the base of the soil.
    • Water needs: It is best to give sedums a good slow drink and allow the soil to dry out again before the next watering. If the soil is still moist, you risk giving your sedum too much water which can make it start to rot.

    **Not ready to plant? If you are not able to plant the root(s) for more than a day or two, remove the root(s) and plant in a container with moistened potting mix and place in a cool (not freezing), dark location. Storing the roots for an extended period of time can reduce their viability.

  • Planting Depth: 1 cm (0.5")
  • Plantling Spacing: 50-60 cm (20-24")
Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
  • Plant in borders and rock gardens
  • Growing Suggestions:
    • Sedum require very little care. Water sedum sparingly if needed. As long as the plants are receiving rain water every week or so, they should not need any additional watering.
    • It may take up to 3 planting seasons for the sedum to fill in and cover the area completely.
    • Dead foliage should be removed in Spring to make way for new growth.
