This was the very first sedum that I bought. It was in a four inch pot. That was four years ago. It is now about 2 1/2 feet across. I love it. It takes virtually no care other than water when it's really hot and dry. It looks nice in the winter, and is covered with dainty yellow blooms starting in April and lasting about three months.

I was so taken with this plant that I now have quite a collection of different sedums.
