Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionAre 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.DetailsBotanical 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 Features: Winter interest, suitable for slopes, heat tolerant, ground covers, evergreen, drought tolerant, cold tolerant Uses: Accent, alpine and rock, container gardening, edging, erosion control or embankment, ground cover, massing, rock garden, slopes, small spaces How To GrowSoil: 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.

Fight plants with plants and transform your garden into a lush landscape in the process.
We got the second order of catmint after losing the first order and still lost one out of the five that we ordered. I can’t wait to see them full grown they are just barely starting to get flowers now.
Small but healthy!
Succulents and sedums are my new favorite this year, can’t get enough of them!
John Creech Stonecrop
Growing very well in poor soil.
My wonderful yar
I live in Maine and the sun moves very quickly from spring to fall and we do have wooded areas in our yard so time will tell how well this plant will do. For part of the season there is full sun as required however on the fringe not as much.
These plants are troopers! They survived the long shipping and are already thriving!
