very beautiful and viberant..!
"Very tough little sedum. Planted toward the front of my flower bed, it got stepped on a couple times, then I decided to move them after a couple weeks of forgetting they were there. Didn't bother them, look even better in there new spot. Can't wait until they flower later this summer hopefully!"
I received my sedum today and planted it right away. The plant is healthy and very pretty. I am excited to see what it will do.
"This ground cover is wonderful. I have a full sun, sandy soil area that was in great need of plants. I ordered the full sun garden, and of that grouping, the Russian Sage, the Red Dianthus and The Dragon's Blood Sedum are the winners. They survive without any care on my part-or very little. Try them."
"I have Sedum spurium growing in my yard for 30 years. It's a vigorous spreader (but not invasive), easy to transplant, and tolerates heat and drought. The flowers on mine are more pink rather than the bright red shown in the picture. Also grows easily in pots and rock walls."
"At first my plants took forever to arrive, a very long time, but when they got here they looked great. Then when I plants them half was great and the rest was shriviling up. Now even the ones that looked dead are growing. It looks beautiful with the Austrian Pine and green velvet Boxwoods I planted. Tip: Don't put down underlayment to prevent weeds. It will be hard weeding in states like CO, but if you put it down, the sedum won't really spread out!"
"This is the best, most vigorous, hardy ground cover I've ever had. During a period absence on my part, it didn't get watered for over 3 wks in the brutal San Antonio August heat/full sun. I thought it was dead but watered in anyway and it plumped up and sent out new growth again! I love it!"
