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:

DescriptionGardening is full of mysteries, and this grab bag of stonecrop (or Sedum) is no different. This collection of 4 randomly selected cultivars of stonecrop will fill your garden with succulent foliage and bright flowers, but which ones? We can't say for sure! While we can't guarantee which stonecrops you'll get in this mystery grab bag - there is one thing we're positive of: it will be stonecrop. Hope you like it. DetailsBotanical name:Sedum '?' Common name: stonecrop ? Zone: Probably 4-9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: ? Flower color: ? Foliage color: ? Season of interest: Late summer through fall Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, cottage gardening, foundation planting, massing, specimen, ground coverHow To GrowSoil: Average, dry to medium moisture, well-draining soils. It needs sharp soil drainage, so it grows well in sandy and gravelly soils. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun). Will lean toward the sun if grown in too much shade. Water: Dry to average moisture. It tolerates drought once established, but should receive some water when conditions are hot and dry. Spacing: ? Fertilizing: Fertilizer isn't required when grown in rich soils, but a handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer can be applied in early spring if needed. Winterizing: Dried flower heads of many varieties remain attractive in winter, whether left standing in the garden or brought indoors. Small animals and bugs may take home in accumulated debris during cold weather. It doesn't need mulch in winter unless grown in harsh climates. Maintenance & pruning: Pinch back the tips of new spring growth for more compact plants. Stop fertilizing and water in the fall and winter. Throughout spring and summer, divisions and cuttings can easily root for new plants.
