Sedums have minimal water needs and a shallow root system making them ideal to use in a sod-like mat. Give them a minimum of 4 hours of sun a day. They thrive in average to poor soil as long as it is well-drained.
Common name includes stonecrop and live forever which implies how easy these plants are to grow. The genus name of sedum comes from the Latin sedo: to sit. This implies that the plants will take root and 'sit' wherever segments break off from the parent and find a home.

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: No special care needed.
Maintenance & pruning: As plants gradually fill in, cut off sections and replant if desired.
