More Information

Description Are you looking for a plant to do the hard work for you? Look no further than Sedum spurium 'John Creech'! This hard-working drought-tolerant sun groundcover is a fantastic weed-smothering ground cover that fills in fast and looks neat and tidy all season long. 'John Creech' is virtually maintenance-free, and it takes care of those pesky weeds for you! Whether you use it as a ground cover or add it to your favorite container, you'll be charmed by its small scalloped green leaves that form a low-growing mat that hugs the ground. Delightful, tiny blooms appear early summer, covering this sedum in a sea of pink. Did you know sedum is often called stonecrop? That's because many gardeners joke that only stones need less care than these low care plants. Sedum spurium 'John Creech' loves sunny spots and well-drained soil, but beyond that, they require little to no maintenance. They're both deer and drought resistant and can thrive in even the poorest of soils, easily making this the most stress-free plant you can add to your garden this season. Details Botanical name: Sedum spurium 'John Creech'
Common name: Sedum, stonecrop, Caucasian stonecrop, two row stonecrop
Zone: 3-9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ Hours)
Height x width: 2-4" x 10-12"
Flower color: Pink
Foliage color: Green
Bloom season: Summer
Uses: Accent, Alpine and rock, Container gardening, Edging, Erosion control or embankment, Ground cover, Massing, Rock garden, Slopes, Small spaces.
How To Grow Soil: Needs well-draining soil. Thrives even in sandy to gravelly soils of moderate to low fertility.
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. Overwatering will impair growth.
Spacing: 1 - 2 ft.
Fertilizing: On average, sedum seldom needed to be fertilized. 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.

Splits too easily

Used this a great deal of these sedum plants as ground cover in my front yard beds.
First year it grew nicely, round mounds approx 8inch in circumference.
Second year it spread out and split, exposing center of plants
- which were unattractive to appearing ugly by mid-July. I have cut back and halved them.
But its become a chore to keep in check - so they are coming out.

Hi Marlene, I'm sorry to hear your sedums are struggling! The main reason sedums look weak and patchy is from poor drainage. Sedums, like this one, need steep drainage to grow well. If you'd like to try a different ground cover for your front beds, check out our other options here: https://www.greatgardenplants.com/collections/ground-covers

Healthy plant, great packaging

I've ordered from several online nurseries and I'm most impressed with Great Garden Plants for their quality of both the plant and the careful packaging. I've received dying/damaged plants from other online nurseries due to lack of secure packaging or poor plant condition before shipping. Specifically, I can say that GGP does a much better job in protecting the plant for shipment than FGT.
