Sedum 'Atlantis' Description
So beautiful, tough & unique - heat & drought tolerant groundcover!
An eye-catcher trouble-free sedum beckons a place in your garden providing no less than 3 seasons of continual foliage interest. Stylish green toothed rosettes edged in wide margins of cream to yellow provides a distinctive warmth, charm, and character. In mid summer, small colorful yellow clusters appear above the foliage. Zone hardy 4-9.
At only 6" tall and 12" wide, this clump forming drought tolerant ground cover is easy to grow and maintain while transforming spots in your garden with color on color contrast. Small enough to tuck into narrow spaces, containers, rock walls or used as a vibrant edging plant.
Grow this lovely sedum in full sun to part shade. Sedums appreciate good drainage on a site in partial shade in southern gardens. It does well in wind, heat and high humidity.
All sedums have succulent, waxy, water holding foliage and stems making them an ideal groundcover for poor to average soil quality. Attracts butterflies & bees.

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.
