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:

Pollinators and gardeners love this sweet stonecrop for its long-blooming flowers and seedheads giving it multi-season appeal. Try creating a low-growing border or add it to your favorite container for a flower packed display each season.DetailsBotanical name:Sedum hybrid 'Pure Joy' Patent #: USPP 24,194 Common name: Stonecrop, sedum Zone: 3-9 Sun exposure: Sun (6+ Hours) Height x width: 10-12″ x 16-20″ Flower color: Bubblegum Pink Foliage color: Green Season of Interest: Late summer, fall Bloom time: Late summer, early fall Features: Heat tolerant, dry soils, drought tolerant, rabbit resistant, container plants, cold tolerant, best for beginners Uses: Accent, container gardening, cottage gardening, massing, ornamental, small spaces, specimen 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.
