Sedum: Great Groundcover Choice

May 23, 2017

I have always thought of sedums as being a great ground cover choice for sunny areas that tend to be on the dry side.  Now I appreciate how well they also do in dry, part-shady locations.  Rita and I love how the various colors and textures work well together.  They are relatively problem free.  We feed them once in early spring with Osmocote Outdoor & Indoor Plant Food.  It is easy to drop in a new plant in a blank space.

When you find individual pots of sedum or a sedum tile mixture in your local garden center… give them a try.

Last year I experimented with planting a “Sedum Tile Mixture” in a dry, partial shade location. I divided the sedum tile into 6 smaller squares. One year later the sedums have spread so now they are easily double their size a year ago. (click photo to enlarge)
