Sedum Wildfire Description
New for 2017! We're extremely excited to introduce the newest SunSparkler® Sedum creation from breeder Chris Hansen!
Wildfire Sedum boasts shiny cherry-red thumbnail-sized leaves with hot pink variegation from early spring thru last hard killing frost in late fall.
Plants of Wildfire create a perfect drought-proof groundcover growing to a height of only 6"" tall x 18"" wide.
This newest SunSparkler® Sedum forms many multiple branches from a single stem, as you can see from the pictures.
In late summer, the variegated foliage is topped with 3"" flowers of rose-pink, which last nearly 4 weeks.

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.
