Color bare spots in full sun with these three showy sedums. Deer resistant and easy to grow.
Turn problem spots in the garden into beds of sparkling salmon, blue-green and yellow. These dense-growing sedums carry rosettes of small, spongy leaves that can stand up to deer, drought and direct sun. Use in well-drained containers as fillers, in rock gardens and as edgings along sunny pathways. Expect clusters of small, starry flowers in spring. Includes one plant each of Oracle, Coral Carpet and Weihenstephaner Gold.
Sedums are propagated by division in fall or spring, or from cuttings in summer.
How to Grow
Like most succulent plants, sedum grow best in dry, poor soil and require full sun. The plants are exceptionally heat and drought tolerant; they also tolerate cold and humidity. Propagate plants by division in fall or spring, or take cuttings in summer. Sedums are rarely bothered by pests, or diseases and are virtually maintenance free.
Plant tall sedums in the middle of the border, as an edging, in a rock garden, or in masses. Cut the flowers for fresh and dry arrangements. Use low growing sedum as ground-cover in rock gardens or in hot dry places or slopes.
