Gardeners' Notes:

Positive wakingdream On Aug 28, 2013, wakingdream from Allentown, PA wrote:

I have found this low mounding Sedum to be very attractive in bloom (early summer). Colors of orange and yellow combine brightly and liven up the already showy variegation. The root ball can be divided easily for increasing the plant. I recommend removing the old stalks before winter sets in, allowing a more tidy spring rejuvenation. It is located in a raised berm rock garden with many other succulents and does not move too fast, just a gradually creeping outward.

I LOVE THIS PLANT! This little guy is incredibly easy to grow (poor to moderate soil, full sun, no fussing), spreads slowly and reliably without being invasive, somehow seems to suppress weeds even though the spreading habit is fairly open, and looks absolutely adorable all of the time, in bloom or not. I started with two little plants and have since bought five more, and am planning to use it as a groundcover in large sections of my Zone 4 front garden. I can't say enough positive things about this sedum. It's a sweetie!

I do not have a history with this plant since I have just recently purchased it. I live in West Texas and purchased the plants from southerlands gardens. I will share any successes I have with the plants as soon as I have grown them for a while. I would welcome any comments regarding the plants.
