    Sedum Red Wiggle Description

    Sedum Red Wiggle is a  drought tolerant groundcover for sun and a one of a kind treasure that will perk up any garden or container.

    Sedums have always been a sun perennial favorite.  They are an undemanding  hardy perennial that require a well drained site in full sun. Expect nothing short of an ironclad performance despite heat, humidity & drought.  Red Wiggle Sedum is low growing with flattering needle like foliage. It creates a whirl of color with bright red foliage accented to green tips. Talk about a standout status that add interest to any space! 

    A semi-evergreen, Red Wiggle turns a brilliant red in fall.  A bit shy when it comes to blooming - you just won't miss the flowers when you have such interesting foliage that is such a pure delight.

    Red Wiggle is highly adaptable and virtually maintenance free.  They make a perfect companion to fragrant Coneflowers, drought-proof Delosperma and multi-season Ornamental Grasses.

    Ideas and How-to's



    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.
