Sedum Abbeydore Description
NEW! Sedum Abbeydore is an easy to grow drought tolerant groundcover.
Abbeydore forms a 10-12"" bushy mound of colorful blue green leaves that stays tidy and neat looking all season long.
In late summer, erect, somewhat arching stems appear with soft pink clusters that unfold to pink magenta blooms! By fall, the flowers gracefully age to a deep red. A mid sized habit (growing 18" tall) but the large flowers clusters associated with taller forms of Sedum.
Abbeydore is just the right height to gracefully edge tall perennials and shrubs, while looking picture perfect all season long in the landscape.
Sedums are enjoyed by Hummingbirds and Butterflies and easy to grow in normal to sandy soil with excellent drainage. They revel in heat, humidity and drought without putting a dent in their performance. Enjoy the dried flower stalks during the winter months. Space 18 inches apart.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
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.
Light: Full sun to part shade. Will lean toward sun if grown in too much shade.
Water: Dry to medium -- Tolerates drought once established, but should receive watering when conditions are hot and dry.
Spacing: 1.5 - 2 ft.
Fertilizing: A handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer sprinkled on the soil each spring is generally all that is needed. If growing in rich soil, it should only be fertilized every other year. Dry granular fertilizers must be watered into the soil.
Winterizing: 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. Does not need mulch in the winter.
Maintenance & Pruning:Plants will be more compact if the tips of new spring growth are pinched back (before bloom) (Cut back up to 1/3. Stop watering and fertilizing in the fall, and do not do so during the winter as well. Return to watering and fertilizing in the spring when new growth appears. Throughout the spring and summer, divisions and cuttings root readily.
