A pop of color illuminates the darkness with this lovely easy to grow mounding sedum. In early spring, dark green and purple leaves emerge. Night Light quickly grows into a shapely dome before bright colored yellow to pink flowers cover the plant to light up the dark foliage. A true multi-season plant with early dark colored foliage that will transform into a spectrum of bright colors that persist from mid-summer to late fall. Sedum is a work horse in the garden and the depth of color and transformative properties of this one make it an excellent tool in the hands of someone looking add a little flavor to the landscape. This low mounding sedum can 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 green/plum colored 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.
