Nothing quite provides multi-season interest and a unique presentation like this weed-suppressing ground cover. Coming in at 4" inches tall, this plant is packed with personality. The lime green succulent leaves provide an interesting three dimensional texture that is offset by the cherry red edging. New growth springs upward in tightly packed clumps that form a carpet on your garden floor. In the late summer, large clusters of pink/red flowers appear and last over a month. Besides looking beautiful, sedum is known for being a tough plant for tough places. It handles full sun and dry conditions with ease and even shows its best colors when left unwatered. If you are looking for a colorful ground cover that can beat the summer sun and heat look no further than this little sedum.

Caring for Sedum 'Lime Zinger' Sunsparkler® Series - Stonecop
Sedum is easy to grow and beautiful, as a result it is one of the most popular garden plants. 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. Sedum prefers full sun, but some varieties can tolerate some shade. It is very resistant to pests and disease and in the winter you'll find that birds are attracted to eat the seed heads. These heads should be removed in spring as the new growth starts to show.
I ordered three sediums, and they were lovely and have adjusted to my garden well.
