These are very popular late spring and summer bloomers. They grow as ground cover to about 2′ high and can become 2′ wide, depending on the variety. They will tolerate drought and heat conditions well, but watering during dry spells is always a good idea. Sedums like full sun to part shade conditions and prefer sandy or richer, heavier soil. There are a few varieties that bloom in fall and some varieties are even like by butterflies. Poolscapes and rock gardens are favorite locations for these plants.
