Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Clary On Jun 30, 2012, Clary from Lewisburg, PA (Zone 6b) wrote:

This is an extremely prolific sedum. After 2 years I now have a patch about 5' square which I started from one single piece about the size of a peanut that hitchhiked in the pot of a plant I purchased by mail order. I loved the fine deep green texture of it and when the patch bloomed this year I was surprised and delighted! The flowers lasted a long time and were a true sunny yellow in color. I am careful to weed out volunteers, careful to discard every sprout that appears outside the dedicated patch, because it will root and spread from the smallest scrap. This sedum can take occasional foot traffic and doesn't require a lot of water.

For eastern United States zone 4, this little guy is one of the top 5 toughest of the true sedum family - they shrug off the rains, winter snow cover, etc.

Lovely little filler plant - great for front of a border. I've found babies of it up to a foot away that are easily moved. Good manners, non-invasive. Ours is in half sun all day.
