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.
ReviewsWrite a reviewVery disappointedSandra Pippin | Sep 6, 2020I planted these as a border to our backyard pool. Full Florida sunshine. They looked beautiful for 5-6 months but have since died. I watered them regularly until our rainy season and I'm not sure what happened. Our other plants in the same area are doing great. Maybe they aren't meant for "full sun". They did look great for 4 months!
Sad looking plantsSherri Locke | Jun 22, 2020I had a large order and these plants were by far the smallest, most sparse, and fragile plants in the bunch. AND the most expensive! I am very disappointed.
