Sedoro Blue Elf Description

World-wide breeding breakthrough! xSedoro 'Blue Elf' is the world's first sedum and orostachys hybrid.

During the past six years of outdoor field trial evaluations, it was decided to propagate and launch this delightful compact 3" tall groundcover hybrid!

Best of both parents - the orotstachys parent gives steel-blue tufted foliage rosettes growing to a compact 3" tall and 15" wide and the sedum parent give sedoro Blue Elf its bright pink flowers in late summer.

100's of flowers simply smother the plant in late summer and attract dozens of honeybees as an added bonus!

Plants of sedoro Blue Elf create a perfect drought-proof groundcover growing to a height of only 3"" tall x 18"" wide.

Forms many multiple branches from a single stem

The colorful and ultra-compact foliage of this new groundcover sedum combines beautifully with yellow-leaved sedum Angelina, Blue festuca grass, & lavender Phenomenal.

Special features: Attracts butterflies, Cold hardy, Deer resistant, Drought tolerant, Easy care, Foliage interest, Heat tolerant, Winter interest

PLANTING GUIDE

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: Full sun -- Tolerates some light part shade in hot summer climates, but will produce weak floppy growth when grown in too much shade.
Water: Tolerates drought once established, but should receive watering when conditions are hot and dry. 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. 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: 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.
