Neon brings classic color with bright pink flowers that persist from mid-summer to late-fall on top of light emerald green succulent foliage. We love this sedum because it is easy to grown and has a classic look that has stood the test of generations. The perfect pink coloration of the blooms blends well into gardens featuring whites, pinks, reds, or greens. The chunky foliage is incredibly detailed on close inspection, but blends into a perfect vase like shape at a distance. Neon is ridiculously easy to grown in poor well-drained soil and the friend to gardeners since it requires little to no maintenance. Sedum carry substance in their thick leaves and heavy stems, this lets them act as a perennial flower or provide a substitute for shrubs in the garden. Spent heads continue to provide interest and food for birds through the winter. Seed heads can be removed in early spring to make way for the next season's succulent green growth.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
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. Plants may be lanky. 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. Think about dividing your sedum every 3 to 4 years to maintain good quality attractive plants. Spring is the best time to perform division. Sedum is usually not bothered by pests or disease.
