Sedum Firecracker Description

 We're extremely excited to introduce our newest SunSparkler® Sedum creation from breeder Chris Hansen!

Firecracker boasts shiny cherry-red thumbnail-sized leaves from early spring thru last hard killing frost in late fall.

Plants of Firecracker create a perfect drought-proof groundcover growing to a height of only 6"" tall x 18"" wide.

This newest SunSparkler® Sedum forms many multiple branches from a single stem, as you can see from the pictures.

The colorful and ultra-compact foliage of this new groundcover Sedum combines beautifully with yellow-leaved Sedum Angelina, Blue Festuca grass, & Lavender Phenomenal.

In late summer, the red foliage is topped with 3"" flowers of rose-pink, which last nearly 4 weeks.

SunSparkler® Sedum Firecracker has proven totally hardy during the past 4 winters in our garden trials.

Special Features: Butterfly Lovers, Cold Hardy, Deer Resistant, Drought Tolerant, Easy Care, Foliage Interest, Heat Tolerant, Winter Interest

Ideas and How-to's

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS

PLANTING GUIDE

Soil: Average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Thrives in sandy to gravelly soils of moderate to low fertility.  Needs sharp soil drainage to perform well. Prefers moist soils with good drainage.
Light: Does best in full sun, but appreciates some protection from harsh sun and heat exposure in very hot summer regions.
Water: Medium to dry -- Considered drought-tolerant once established. Over watering will impair growth.  
Spacing: 1 - 2 ft.
Fertilizing: On average soil, seldom needs fertilizer. A handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer sprinkled on the soil each spring is generally all that is needed for poorer soils. If growing in rich soil, it should only be fertilized every other year. Dry granular fertilizers must be watered into the soil.
Winterizing: Does not need mulch in the winter. Remove the debris (such as the remains of showy sedums) from under and around your plants in the late fall and continue to remove any debris as it accumulates. Small animals and bugs may take home in accumulated debris during cold weather.
Maintenance & Pruning: Can cut back in Autumn, after flowering. Divide in spring.

Just wanted to say my plant order came today and they are all planted and are just beautiful. The ones I ordered last fall made it thru our harsh winter and are growing good, I appreciate the time you take to package them.
