Sedum Instructions

Grow your Sedum for amazing four-seasons of color!

Here is a plant that thrives in full sun to partial shade. Spectacular color all year long, especially in late summer and autumn when you need it most.

When to Plant

  • Plant in the fall for spring foliage.
  • Plant in the spring for summer, fall and winter color.

Where to Plant

  • Full sun to partial shade.
  • Sedum grows in the poorest soil, in places where almost nothing else will grow.

How to Plant

Remove poly wrapping before planting

  • These are pot-grown plants with a sturdy, vigorous root system. Plant as directed, water, and you will be rewarded with years of abundant beauty.
  • Loosen the soil to a depth of about 12 inches and work in peat, humus or compost to loosen the soil. Dig a hole about 12 inches across.
  • Space your Sedum 12-18 inches apart. It will quickly spread and fill the area between plants within a year.
  • Cut off the foliage, if any, to about 1 inch from the top of the plant.
  • Set the plant with the sprouts or eyes just below ground level. Spread the roots to help the plant become established. Water frequently and thoroughly after planting.

Feeding

  • Perennials may be allowed to remain undisturbed for several years. Feed occasionally with a balanced fertilizer. Water during periods of drought.

Pruning/Cuttings

  • Never needs pruning.
