Sedum is easy to grow and beautiful, as a result it is one of the most popular garden plants. The low growing ground cover varieties make great plants for rock gardens walkway borders and near patios. They can also thrive in a container. Taller varieties can be mixed with more traditional flowers to provide additional color and texture to the garden.
Sedums are extremely drought tolerant and can be grown in poor soil so long as there is good drainage. If grown in soil that is fertile, it will grow in a less attractive, more spread out form. Plants may be lanky. Sedum prefers full sun, but some varieties can tolerate some shade.
