Sedum Sunsparkler® 'Lime Zinger' Description
AVAILABLE EARLY APRIL 2020!
Easy care, trouble-free groundcover thrives in heat, humidity & little water. Fast growing. High performing groundcover fills in fast.
From Sedum breeder, Chris Hansen. 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! Sedum Lime Zinger brings a totally new look to the groundcover realm of sedums with its compact 6" tall habit which colorfully spreads to 18" wide in a single year!
The attractive foliage display is topped in late summer with brilliant pink blooms which last for several weeks.
Chris selected Lime Zinger sedum from 1000's of his seedlings he'd been growing and evaluating in his field in west Michigan. He considers it a great breakthrough in groundcover sedum breeding.
The hot pink, non-flopping, flowers that don't fade make the perfect companion to fragrant coneflowers, long blooming Knockout roses, & multi-season ornamental grasses.

More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
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.
