Stonecrop Interesting Notes

A very beautiful perennial. Forms a perfect, circular mound of arching stems covered with fleshy, round, blue-green foliage which is edged with a deep pink line. Dusty rose flowers in late summer. Deciduous. Needs a well-drained location. Plant this in a spot where it is easily admired. One of the loveliest Sedum. Excellent container subject. - Canning Perennials

Genus name from Latin sedo meaning to sit, refering to manner in which plants "sit" on walls; common name refers to manner in which many species live on stoney ledges; except for spurium native to Caucasus and ternatum native to eastern U.S., mostly native to Asia; many species have been reassigned by some authorities to the genus Hylotelephium. - Dr. Leonard Perry, Professor, University of Vermont

Sedum sieboldii Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prefers average to dry, well-drained soil in full sun. Intolerant of wet soils. Propagate by seed and cuttings, although division seems to be the easiest for most. Excellent as a perennial border, in rock gardens, or as a groundcover or container plant.
