Sedum Tricolor Description
Fast growing Sedum tricolor is easy to grow and maintenance free drought proof ground cover that will add a dose of color and beauty to your garden.
Sedum tricolor is a sprawling, low growing, ground hugging mat that will quickly spread 18" wide and 6" tall. 1" long tricolor leaves feature a green center with white margins tinged pink.
Early summer give way to hundreds of cheerful pink flowers that smother the foliage.
Sedums seldom need watering. They thrive in sandy and even rocky soils. Their only requirement is good drainage. They love sun and this one will take some shade.
This drought tolerant ground cover has so many uses from containers, planted here and there in walkways, between cracks in stone walls.
If you see a stem revert to green, please remove right away.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Average, 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 to partial shade
Water: Medium to dry -- Considered drought-tolerant once established. Over watering will impair growth.
Spacing: 12" - 18"
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. Dried flower heads of many varieties remain attractive in winter, whether left standing in the garden or brought indoors. 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: Easy to trim to keep the size you want. Divide or take cuttings at any time
