Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionSunSparkler® 'Lime Zinger' Stonecrop (Sedum) brings an entirely new look to the groundcover realm of sedums with its compact 6" tall habit, which colorfully spreads over a foot in a single year. Thumbnail-sized leaves of lime green are each surrounded by cherry-red picotee edges. Never before has there been a groundcover sedum with such colorful, contrasting foliage. The foliage display is topped in late summer with brilliant pink blooms, lasting for several weeks.
This cultivar is from sedum breeder Chris Hansen. 'Lime Zinger' was selected from thousands of seedlings he'd been growing and evaluating in West Michigan. It stood out among thousands of sedums and will surely stand out in your garden!DetailsBotanical name:Sedum 'Lime Zinger' Patent #: USPP 24,632 Common name: Lime zinger sedum, SunSparkler sedum, stonecrop Zone: 4 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 6" x 18" Flower color: Pink Foliage color: Green with red margins Season of interest: Spring through fall Bloom time: Late summer, early fall Features: Best for beginners, heat tolerant, ground covers, evergreens, drought tolerant, container plants, cold tolerant Uses: Accent, container gardening, cottage gardening, ground cover, massing, ornamental, small spaces, specimen How To GrowSoil: Average, dry to medium moisture, well-draining soils. It needs sharp soil drainage, so it grows well in sandy and gravelly soils. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun). Will lean toward the sun if grown in too much shade. Water: Dry to average moisture. It tolerates drought once established, but should receive some water when conditions are hot and dry. Spacing: 18 in. Fertilizing: Fertilizer isn't required when grown in rich soils, but a handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer can be applied in early spring if needed. Winterizing: Dried flower heads of many varieties remain attractive in winter, whether left standing in the garden or brought indoors. Small animals and bugs may take home in accumulated debris during cold weather. It doesn't need mulch in winter unless grown in harsh climates. Maintenance & pruning: Pinch back the tips of new spring growth for more compact plants. Stop fertilizing and water in the fall and winter. Throughout spring and summer, divisions and cuttings can easily root for new plants.

Growing fantastic already, I have high hopes for this plant and I haven’t been able to get anything else to grow well in this spot. Looks awesome!
Very pleased with the condition of the plants and the packaging made it very easy to plant!
Loving how they are already spreading with a pinch of pink. Fall hasn't really shown up in Zone 8a, but when it does, they will be gorgeous
Great little plant
I wasn't quite sure what I wanted, but ordered this cute plant, and was very pleased. It arrived healthy, green, and beautiful. I planted it in a moderate size ceramic pot. Can't wait till it begins to thrive. I love the packaging.
These are my first stonecrops. They are so cute! Look just like the picture! They arrived in great shape and were packaged very well. Highly recommend GGP!
