This one grows really well in our scorching desert heat. It doesn't even seem to notice the 105+ degrees, even in full sun. It doubled in size in one season. Really well suited for hot "hell strips" that get only occasional water.

I've had this sedum growing on the large front hill of our property for three years now. I first planted it as tiny little bare root plants that I got mail order. The first year they managed to grow a couple of inches before the colder weather set in and the snow began to fall. They were all but gone for the winter, but in the spring they started to come up and they have now reached sizes that are more than respectable considering how they started out. I probably have about 100 of them growing in an area about 15' x 10' and they are mixed in with yellow sedum. the plants are at least 10" x 10'' each and about 6-8 inches tall. They have survived very severe winter snow and come out perfectly. I'm very happy with these little plants. The deer love them too, so keep the area fenced.

I love all kinds of sedums, including this one. I bought 2 Voodoo's this year. Planted one next to a sidewalk in part shade, the foliage is a little lighter on this one. The other, I planted in a terracotta pot and placed in full sun. They're both doing great, contrast well with sedums of diffrent colors and other heat loving plants.

I added this in last year and It is a fabulous little sedum, the leaf color is bright maroon in the spring when it first comes out, then goe to a more dark muted color. I have mine planted next to Lamb's Ear they seem to like each other's company and are a great contrast. I will get a pic when our weather is better.
