Sedum are perennial plants which are hardy, tough, and drought tolerant. Sedum plants are used for mass plantings and as individual ornamental plants. There are hundreds of species of sedums and they are widely grown because of the ease of growing these showy plants and for their outstanding drought tolerance. Sedums are very versatile in the landscape. They are used as ground covers, in rock gardens, for edgings, for borders, for beds, hanging baskets and roof gardens. Sedums are also used as houseplants. They need at least 4 hours of direct sunlight to be used as a house plant to flourish. Most sedums should be planted in full sun to partial shade and in well drained soil.
Depeding on the type of sedum, you can get blooms from spring until fall. Sedum foliage is attractive during the growing season and many of them are adorned with beautiful flowers in early fall. Some Stonecrop sedums are left standing during winter months and the plant stalks add a vibrant appearance to a winter landscape. Along with a beautiful plant, the added benefit of sedums is the butterflies they will attract.
