Sedum acre Aureum Description
Sedum acre aureum is a low growing evergreen sedum that can grow up to 12"+ wide in a single season!
Small needlelike leaves tightly overlap to form a weed smothering light green carpet of evergreen foliage that turns bright yellow in spring. Gold star-like flowers appear in summer.
One of the fastest spreading sedums. Plant between pavers, stepping stones. It can tolerate light foot traffic! Use in tubs and mixed containers.
This lovely little creeper thrives in poor, but well drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sedums are a sun perennial favorite. Their toughness and disposition makes them ideal for poor (but well drained) soil. Very few plants do so well despite heat, humidity & drought.
Aureum is highly adaptable and virtually maintenance free. Combine with other drought tolerant sedums, or delospermas in the landscape.

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.
